Missouri Highway Patrol said that a truck driver admitted that he took his eyes off of the road and when he looked up was unable to stop for slowing traffic, causing a truck accident.
The semi-truck rear-ended a car causing a horrific accident on Interstate 55. The semi-truck could not stop in time and it ran over a Ford Focus and drug it 100 yards. The 52-year-old man driving this vehicle was killed.
The semi-truck driver than swerved to the right hitting more cars and killing a 28-year-old female driver. An accident re constructionist is currently reviewing the accident to see if the truck driver is negligent.
Semi-trucks are huge vehicles and when they are involved in accidents serious injury can result, our thoughts are with the family and friends of the victim.
