A Gallatin resident was injured in a traffic accident in the 4 o’clock hour on Monday afternoon on Interstate 35 in Clay County.  The Highway Patrol confirmed moderate injuries for 54-year old Shawn Teel, who was transported by ambulance to nearby Liberty Hospital.

The driver of a Freightliner truck, 36-year old Fathi Salal of Kansas City, escaped injury.  Both vehicles were northbound on I-35 when the Teel SUV failed to slow for traffic and rear-ended the truck.  The SUV was demolished, with moderate damage to the Freightliner.
