The impact of the crash caused a wheel to fly out of the back of Roper's truck. It hit a concrete plant holder at the Styninger Pacey Funeral Home, causing it to break.
Roper was taken to St. Mary's Hospital in Centralia for treatment. Juds escaped injury, but was ticketed for failure to obey a traffic control device. The wreck occurred at 7:10 Wednesday night.
