A Raymondville man was injured Monday, Oct. 12, in an accident west of Willow Springs on Highway 76.

A Raymondville man received moderate injuries Monday afternoon in a trailer-truck accident in Douglas County, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said. 

Troopers said Carl Anderson, 47, was operated an eastbound 2001 Western Star conventional tractor unit that failed to negotiate a curve, causing its trailer to travel off the right side of Highway 76. The trailer disconnected and overturned. The truck overturned in the roadway, troopers said. 

Anderson, who was not wearing a seat belt, was taken by ambulance to Mercy Hospital in Mountain View. 

The vehicle was totaled.
