April 28, 2021

SALINE COUNTY - A news report published on states that a 26-year-old man from Coral Gables, Florida, was transported by medical helicopter to an emergency medical center due to the life-threatening injuries he suffered in a severe motor vehicle accident involved three 18-wheeler tractor-trailer trucks. The area slowed traffic for several hours along eastbound I-70.*

According to an accident report provided by the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the I-70 accident transpired when a Peterbilt truck, driven by a 53-year-old man from Sturgis, Michigan, was struck by another tractor-trailer truck from behind. The report states that a Freightliner, driven by a 35-year-old woman from Avon, Indiana, was reducing speed to enter a construction zone. Suddenly, a second Freightliner struck the rear of the Peterbilt and caused the Peterbilt truck to rear-end the Avon woman's Freightliner. All of the trucks then came to a rest in the right traffic lane of I-70.

One of the truck drivers was ait evacuated by Life Flight Eagle Air Ambulance to the University Hospital in Columbia for emergency medical treatment.

The truck accident occurred at approximately 3:45 PM at mile marker 76.4. The truck accident is currently under investigation. No criminal charges have been filed at this time.
