An Indiana man escaped with minor injuries after losing control of his vehicle and hitting a tree Tuesday afternoon in St. Joseph.

Troop H of the Missouri State Highway Patrol says 77-year-old Greenwood, Indiana resident William J. Reisa was driving a 2017 GMC 1500 southbound on Interstate29 at the city limits of St. Joseph when he lost control of his truck, which traveled off the west side of the roadway and struck a tree.

Troopers say Reisa was wearing a seat belt at the time, but he still suffered minor injuries. He was taken by Buchanan County EMS to Mosaic Life Care in St. Joseph for treatment.
