COLUMBIA — A female driver and male passenger sustained minor injuries in a single-car rollover accident on I-70 Thursday afternoon.
The car, a Buick LeSabre, sustained significant damage when it went off the road near mile marker 118.
Trooper Jon Cluver of the Missouri State Highway Patrol said the driver appeared to have swerved to miss something that fell off of a tractor trailer, and the car went into a ditch.
The driver and passenger were both wearing seat belts at the time of the accident and were transported to University Hospital, Cluver said.
Traffic was backed up heading westbound on I-70 to Highway UU.
