1 injured in semi crash along Route 3

WARE, IL (KFVS) - A crash on Route 3 near Ware stalled traffic for about a half-hour Wednesday morning.

Tim Ballance, from Wolf Lake, said he was testing the auto-drive system on his new truck when it veered off the road and into a ditch. The 59-year-old crashed through the windshield and landed about 20-yards away from the vehicle.

Our very own Rachel Gartner was the first to drive up on the scene. She called 911 and stayed with Ballance until crews were able to rush him to a Cape Girardeau hospital.

No word on his condition.
