A collision between two semi tractor trailers has closed northbound Highway 27, about 2 miles south of the Running Fox/Hwy 61 interchange. The accident happened at about 3:00pm.

It appears both trucks were in the northbound lanes. Damage to the trucks seems to indicate that the truck with the flatbed trailer struck the rear of the grain trailer, causing it to roll onto its side, blocking the lane and spilling its load. At this point, the cause of the accident remains under investigation.

The scanner call reported on driver was not injured, and the other had minor injuries.,

More information will be posted after the Missouri Highway Patrol releases the accident report.
