(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) One person was injured after a truck lost an axle while traveling north on I-29 just north of 169.

According to a Missouri State Highway Patrol crash report, a 2012 Volvo Conventional was traveling north on I-29 Friday morning when it lost an axle.

The axle crossed the median to southbound I-29 striking the windshield of a 2016 Toyota Avalon. The Avalon traveled off the west side of I-29.

The axle traveled back across the median striking the windshield of a 2000 Pontiac Bonneville.

The driver of the Avalon suffered moderate injuries and was transported by Andrew County EMS to Mosaic Life Care.

North and southbound traffic was narrowed to one lane on each side while crews cleared the scene.

Skies have started to cloud up late today after we saw sunshine for the first half of the day. Clouds will start to break apart again this afternoon with temperatures warming into the lower 50s. The majority of today will be dry, but there could be a few areas of light drizzle later this evening mainly to the south of the St. Joseph area. Temperatures will continue to warm on Saturday making a run for 60 under mostly sunny skies. A few clouds will move into the area Saturday evening as a cold front moves through. That cold front could bring us a few areas of light rain once again, but most areas will see less than a tenth of an inch of rain.. Temperatures will be slightly cooler on Sunday because of the cold front, but will quickly start to warm into the 50s by the beginning of next week.
