Crosssover Wreck Causes a Fatality
A forty-nine-year-old woman was killed recently in a car accident involving a Freightliner tractor trailer that was traveling north on highway 45 in Missouri. The driver of the tractor trailer, a thirty-eight-year-old Springfield man, crossed over into the southbound lanes. When he did, he struck a Chevy pick-up truck, forcing it off the road. He then ran into a Toyota Sienna, killing the driver of the vehicle. The woman’s seven-year-old son, who was a passenger in the vehicle, was not killed. However, he was taken to the hospital with very serious injuries.
At the time of the article, which appeared on The Kansas City Star website, it was unclear whether or not alcohol was involved in this accident. The driver of the tractor trailer was charged with involuntary manslaughter as well as two counts of assault.
