(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) One person was taken to the hospital after a multi-vehicle crash Friday morning.

According to the St. Joseph Police Department, a silver Chevrolet truck was traveling south on the Belt Highway and failed to stop for the traffic light.

The truck was traveling at the posted speed limit of 40 mph when it struck a tan Ford Tarus on the passenger side that was traveling westbound on Messanie. The silver truck then bumped into a black truck that was facing east on Messanie.

The passenger of the Ford had to be extricated out of the vehicle by the St. Joseph Fire Department. Police said the passenger was conscious when she was taken out of the vehicle but did not know the extent of their injuries.

The driver of the silver truck was cited for failure to yield.

We have had rain off and on this Friday afternoon across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. Scattered showers will continue off and on through the evening and overnight hours. A few showers could linger through the day Saturday but the rain will be lighter than today and much more scattered. Temperatures will slowly start to warm Sunday into Monday as sunshine returns and conditions start to dry out. Another cold front is headed our way Monday night and that will bring us a chance for rain and possibly some snow into Tuesday morning as the colder air surges into our area. Temperatures look to stay unseasonably cool through the rest of the next week.
