Missouri truck accident kills 2, injures another

Two men were killed in a Missouri truck accident during the early morning hours of June 16. The victims and another passenger were traveling in a car when it crashed into a semi-truck on Old Highway M near Lemay Ferry Road in Imperial. The truck was backing up onto a private road and the vehicle rear-ended the truck, resulting in this fatal truck accident.

Two of the vehicle's occupants, a 57-year-old man and a 31-year-old man, were transported to a St. Louis hospital where they later were pronounced dead. The other passenger sustained moderate injuries, but it is unknown whether the victim was transported to an area hospital. There is no word to indicate whether the truck driver received any injuries as a result of this accident.

Police have not released any further information speculating on other factors that may have led to this accident. No further details were released to warrant suspicion of any other circumstances that could have played a role in this tragic accident.

Rear-end collisions are often the result of an individual failing to give the proper distance between their vehicle and the vehicle they are following. When additional details are released, they could potentially shed more light on who is actually responsible for this fatal truck accident.

When people are injured in car accidents, it is often a frightening experience. Many things may be running through a person's mind. First and foremost injuries should be addressed, but families of those who have died in car accidents should know that if another's negligence contributed to the collision, they may be able to hold that person accountable through a civil lawsuit.
