The front left of the semi truck impacted the passenger rear of the Durango operated by Dougherty which then went off the road and slid down an embankment .

Dougherty suffered what were described as moderate injuries and was transferred to Mosaic Life Care Hospital in St. Joseph by the Atchison Holt Ambulance.

The Holt County Sheriff's Office and Craig Fire Department also responded to the wreck.
