MONROE COUNTY, Mo. (WGEM) -

Police investigated a tractor-trailer crash, just west of Monroe City, Missouri Saturday. 

State Highway Patrol Troop B said it happened at 5:39 p.m. 

In a crash report, Trooper Johnson said a pickup truck was trying to cross U.S. 36 and hit the tow unit of the freightliner truck. 

The truck continued on the road until the trailer lost it's axles and the unit overturned.

A 17-year-old boy in the pickup and the driver of the freightliner truck have serious injuries while the passenger in the freightliner had minor injuries. 

The eastbound traffic is down to one lane and MoDOT said the lane closure can last until midnight.
