Lake Sun Leader

An Iberia man was injured Tuesday evening in a trailer accident on Route TT at Three Oaks Drive. 

According to a report from the Missouri State Highway Patrol, 22-year-old Adam Ray was minorly injured after his eastbound 1998 International 9100 traveled down a hill towards a curve where the weight and momentum of the loaded trailer caused the vehicle to rotate counterclockwise and jackknife with the trailer. The vehicle and trailer traveled off the right side of the road and struck a tree. Ray was privately transported to Lake Regional Hospital to treat his injuries. 

The vehicle Ray was driving had extensive damage and was towed from the scene.
