Missouri State Troopers say 500 pounds of packaged marijuana spilled onto I-70 eastbound in Callaway County after Wednesday morning’s crash involving two tractor-trailers and a GMC Sierra.
The accident closed the eastbound lanes near Williamsburg for a few hours. It’s about 15 miles east of Kingdom City.
The soldiers arrested two men from the country of Mexico: David Mora Navarro and Victor Gonzalez Acosta were in the GMC. There were no serious injuries in the accident.
There were so many marijuana packets that they also covered both lanes and the side of the highway. The patrol report says the crash happened when the GMC driver crashed into the back of a tractor-trailer. Another tractor-trailer rammed the GMC.
