Slick roads were blamed for a wreck Thursday at Roby.

A Plato man was injured Thursday morning on snow-covered Highway 17 at Roby. 

Sgt. Jeff Kinder of the Missouri State Highway Patrol said a northbound 2002 Ford truck driven by Jerry R. Leininger, 59, ran off the left side of the roadway and overturned, striking a tree.

Leininger, who was wearing a seat belt, was taken by ambulance to a Fort Leonard Wood hospital.

His vehicle was totaled, Kinder said.
