One person was injured when a semi and a truck collided in Clark County Wednesday morning.

Illinois State Police report the crash occurred at 11:17am on Illinois 49. The semi driver, 36-year-old Adam Shoaff of Casey, was attempting a right turn off the highway. The truck driver, 56-year-old Roy Snively of Charleston, failed to notice the semi had slowed for the turn. Snively swerved right to avoid Shoaff, but collided with the turning semi.
