MACON COUNTY, Mo. — A driver from Hannibal was hospitalized after a crash in Macon County early Thursday morning.

According to the Highway Patrol, the cash occurred around 3:05 a.m. Thursday on Highway 156, one-half mile east of La Plata.

A semi operated by Roy W. Couch, 60 was eastbound when it ran off the right side of the roadway.
