A tractor-trailer accident on Interstate 485 caused the vehicle, that was carrying cheese and peppers at the time, to overturn on the roadway.

According to officials, the accident occurred around 4:45 a.m. when the man somehow lost control of the truck and it flipped over across the interstate, just south of Interstate 35.

No other vehicles were struck in the crash and the details of what caused the crash are still not known at this time. The Missouri Highway Patrol is currently investigating the accident at this time and the driver’s condition is also unavailable.
