State police ticketed a truck driver from Missouri after a rollover accident on an Interstate 55 off-ramp in Springfield Wednesday afternoon.

The tractor-trailer, driven by Thomas Little, 42, of Columbia, Mo.,was exiting southbound I-55 to Route 54 around 4:30 p. m. The rig rolled into the ditch, and Little had to be extricated.

Police say they cited Little for failure to reduce speed to avoid a crash.
