According to state police, the truck swerved to avoid the other vehicle and ran off the south side of the interstate where the semi ran up a hill and then through the guardrail.  The truck then ran up the U.S. 421 interchange before striking another guardrail, tearing off the fuel tanks, and catching fire.

The driver suffered minor face and head injuries.  His 7-year-old son, who was a passenger in the truck, had a few minor scratches.
