A Sedalia man was injured in an 18-wheeler rollover in Pettis County just after midnight Friday.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that a northbound 1992 Peterbilt T377, driven by 18-year-old Carter I. Knoernschild of Sedalia, was on Route 127 at Hinken Road at 12:01 a.m. Sept. 25, when the vehicle failed to negotiate a right turn, causing it to overturn, coming to rest on the driver's side in the southbound lane, facing east.

Koernschild suffered moderate injuries, and was transported to Bothwell Regional Health Center by private vehicle.

The Peterbilt had extensive damage, and was towed from the scene by Don's Truck Towing.
