A Hoyleton man was transported to an area hospital after injuries sustained in a semi-truck and car accident on U.S. Route 51 on Wednesday evening.

According to WMIX, Ricky True, 67, of Irvington was driving a 2019 Kenworth semi-truck and trailer north on Route 51 at 7 p.m. when he had attempted to turn left on the Interstate 64 westbound on-ramp. During the same time, Jason Everett, 36, of Hoyleton was traveling south on Route 51 in a 2017 Ford pickup truck.
