Last Friday afternoon, a deadly truck accident took place in Springfield, Missouri within Greene County, which is around 200 miles southwest of St. Louis. The truck crash happened right after 2:00 p.m. Friday afternoon and left a man dead and his twin brother with critical injuries. The crash occurred at the intersection of Route 13 and Division Street. A forty-two year old man in a 2002 Dodge pickup truck was due east on Division Street with his twin brother in the passenger seat of his vehicle when he lost control of his truck. He then ran through a red-light signal and landed in the path of northbound traffic. The multi-truck crash left the Dodge truck stuffed between an 18-wheeler and a delivery truck. No information has been released on the states of the other two truck drivers. Prayers go out to the family and friends of all of those involved in this tragic multiple truck accident.
