A car driven by Richard Carpenter, 24, of Columbia ran off the right side of road and struck the Jeep, tow truck and Ziegelbein, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said. The car overturned, landing on its roof in both eastbound lanes. Carpenter, who was wearing a seat belt, was in fair condition at University Hospital this morning. A passenger in the car, Jubal J.
