Four firefighters from Marshall and a Missouri Highway Patrol trooper were injured while working to clear a rollover crash on eastbound I-70 at mile marker 77.

A trooper jumped out of the way and received minor injuries.
Two firefighters were taken to Fitzgibbon Hospital in Marshall. One firefighter has minor injuries and the other has serious injuries.
The other two firefighters sustained serious injuries and were taken to University Hospital in Columbia.
