One person was hurt after a two vehicle crash Wednesday night in Cole County.

Missouri Highway Patrol reports show the crash occurred around 11 p.m. on Route B, just north of the St. Thomas bridge over the Osage River.

Dusti Walls, 26, of LaPlata, was driving his tractor trailer and had his vision obstructed by another vehicle, which was parked and unoccupied on the northbound side of Route B. Walls was unable to stop and the front right side of his truck hit the parked vehicle. The truck continued pushing the parked vehicle approximately 150 feet along the guard rail before coming to a stop.

Walls was wearing a seat belt and was treated for minor injuries.
