Festus, MO (KSDK) - Authorities are working to determine what caused a trash truck driver to veer out of a lane shift on Interstate 55 and crash into a MoDOT work zone Friday morning.

The crash happened just before 6 a.m. in the southbound lanes of I-55 in Festus.

The driver was supposed to veer left at the scene of the lane shift but kept going straight, plowing through a concrete wall and striking a MoDOT vehicle.

No one was injured.

The accident caused only minor delays.

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources was called to the scene because some fuel was spilled on the shoulder.
