Accident on 71
During the early morning hours of April 7, 2008, a toddler and a woman were killed in an accident on 71 in Oklahoma. The accident occurred when a semi-truck veered left to avoid colliding with a Chevrolet. The Chevrolet was then flipped on its side.
a toddler was killed
During a recent afternoon, a toddler was killed in an accident on Interstate 71 north of Louisville, Kentucky. The crash was caused by a large truck that rear-ended a passenger vehicle. The child was pronounced dead at the scene.
Two adults in the car were also taken to the hospital. The truck driver was not injured and stayed at the scene.
The aforementioned truck had the dud. The most likely cause of the crash was the driver’s lack of seatbelts. The child was restrained in a car seat in the back of the Trailblazer. It was also driving at a high rate of speed. The other vehicle in the accident was a silver car.
The most important piece of information is that a toddler was killed in the wreck. There were four other people in the car. The driver of the pickup was hospitalized. The other two drivers refused medical treatment at the scene. The other vehicle, a GMC Sierra, was also taken to the hospital.
a woman is dead
Earlier this week, a woman was killed after a crash on Highway 71 in southwest Austin. The woman was identified as 52-year-old Shala Morgan.
The crash happened on Highway 71 near Bannister Road. Austin-Travis County EMS was called to the scene. Three patients were reported at the scene, but none were taken to the hospital.
Another adult was taken to a hospital, but was reported in stable condition. A child was in a car seat and was also taken to a hospital in stable condition. The driver of the pickup truck was also taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Investigators are working to determine what caused the crash. Initial information suggests that alcohol may have been a factor. However, drugs are not suspected.
The silver Nissan Altima was traveling southbound on the highway at 12:14 a.m. The car lost control and crossed all lanes of the highway. The vehicle hit the west concrete wall.
a semi-truck veered left to avoid colliding with a Chevrolet
Luckily, two people in two different vehicles were uninjured. The tan Chevrolet Tahoe was traveling northbound on 71 Highway when the driver suddenly changed lanes.
The tan SUV braked in front of the semi-truck. The semi-truck veered left to avoid a collision. Apparently, the driver of the Chevy Cruze was unaware of the semi-truck’s path. It was pushed off the road.
The other vehicle involved in the crash was a white Chevrolet Suburban, which veered left. It was struck in the front left-hand corner of the vehicle.
The Chevy Trailblazer, a Waterford resident, was driven by a 49-year-old driver. The car was pushed off the road and struck a dry drainage ditch.
The other vehicle involved in the crash, a silver Jeep Grand Cherokee, was driven by an adult passenger. The vehicle was also pushed off the road and struck a concrete center median.
The car was also pinned between the semi-truck and the median. It was likely a fireball.
a car flipped onto its side
Sadly, a woman and a child were killed in a car crash on U.S. 71 near Bannister Road in Springfield on Tuesday. The two vehicles involved were damaged and the drivers were taken to local hospitals, according to police. The accident closed the highway for two and a half hours.
The driver of vehicle #1 was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital after being hit on the driver’s side of the vehicle. The vehicle flipped over onto its side after the crash. The car was later towed out of the accident. The driver was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, but was reportedly evaluated for leg pain. The vehicle was also damaged, according to police. The crash was investigated by the Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Missouri Department of Conservation. There were no tickets issued for the accident. The investigation is ongoing, but investigators aren’t sure why the driver lost control of the car.
