Workers from Satterfield's Wrecker Service in Sikeston work to clear a trailer from the median on Interstate 55 at the 62.4 mile marker. Southbound I-55 traffic was stop-and-go and backed up Friday for the cleanup. The trailer was from a 10 a.m. accident in which a northbound semi tractor-trailer lost control of the vehicle, ran off the left side of the roadway and overturned in the median. The driver, Paul R. Mullinax, 63, of Frostproof, Fla., sustained minor injuries and was transported by ambulance to Missouri Delta Medical Center in Sikeston.
