MACON COUNTY, Mo. – A Foristell resident was injured when his tractor trailer ran off the road, striking a house Tuesday. At 5:17 this morning, Joshua Finnern, 32, was traveling northbound on US 63, two-and-a-half miles north of Macon, when his tractor trailer went off the right side of the roadway, striking a tree and then a vacant house before coming to a full stop.
Despite the stationary objects Finnern’s vehicle struck, he received only minor injuries, for which he was taken by ambulance to Samaritan Hospital. Finnern was wearing his seatbelt, helping him avoid potentially more severe injuries.
