HANNIBAL, Mo. -- A Shelbina man was trapped in his car for a short time after the car collided with a semi-truck at 6:34 a.m. Wednesday.

Vincent J. Hercules, 48, was freed from the 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt and taken by ambulance to Hannibal Regional Hospital for treatment of moderate injuries.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported that Hercules was driving north on U.S. 24 seven miles west of Hannibal, and a 2007 Mack Vision Conventional semi was traveling west on the U.S. 36 exit ramp.

The driver of the truck, Ronald D. Brady, 53, of Mayview, Mo., tried to turn left from the ramp onto southbound U.S. 24 but failed to yield, striking the Chevrolet.

Assisting were the Marion County Sheriff's Department, Palmyra Fire Department and Marion County EMS.
