Trucking Accident Kills Alabama Man

Comments Off

A trucking accident in Oregon killed a 23-year-old man from Alabama on Tuesday morning. He was driving an SUV on Highway 58 when he was hit by a semi-truck after crossing the center line. The semi-truck burst into flames after the collision. A good samaritan rescued the driver of the semi-truck. He is at the hospital.

Investigation determined that the deceased drove a 2002 Nissan Pathfinder and was rounding a sweeping left curve when his SUV crossed into the path of an oncoming 2002 Freightliner pulling a flatbed trailer

It is unknown why the driver of the SUV crossed the center line but it is believed that speed was a factor. The police are still investigating the accident which closed the highway for several hours on Tuesday. No one else was involved or injured in the trucking accident.
