The exit ramp to 610 East was shut down for a few hours this morning after a man slammed his truck into the metal barrels at the divider separating the ramps. It happened at around 2am on Highway 290 near the 610 exit ramps. Firefighters had to pry the driver out of the truck. That driver was taken to the hospital in extremely critical condition.

Police say they will test the man at the hospital to find out if he was drinking and driving at the time of the crash.
