COLUMBIA—An eastbound truck hit a vehicle stranded on the Missouri River Bridge around 9 a.m. Tuesday, according to an email from Sergeant Paul Reinsch of the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
Columbia and Cooper County fire departments responded to the crash, which occurred near mile marker 114.2 of Interstate 70 eastbound.
The truck was carrying cars, and one vehicle caught on fire and blocked both eastbound and westbound lanes, Reinsch said.
The Missouri Department of Transportation planned to activate signs and send a bridge inspector to the scene, according to the email.
