State troopers say 66-year-old Lynda Tilden was eastbound just before noon today (on Thursday) when a large metal container struck her vehicle as she met on a curve with a westbound truck driven by 49-year-old Van Pamperien of Mountain Grove.

The container reportedly fell off the truck. Tilden was taken by ambulance to Cox South Hospital in Springfield.
