A St. Louis man is facing additional charges after Alton authorities say he was driving under the influence when the scrap truck he was driving overturned as he made a turn off the Clark Bridge in Alton last week. 52 year old Bobby Love is charged with DUI for allegedly possessing cannabis, driving too fast for conditions and no valid registration. The accident took place during the morning rush hour last Thursday as Love attempted to turn right off the bridge onto Highway 143. The truck lost its load of scrap cars and metal and spilled into the traffic lane and onto a vehicle stopped in traffic. Love suffered minor injuries in the accident, but no one else was injured. Love was driving for Complete Auto Recycling Services out of Kinloch, Missouri.
