Truck driver charged in nine-vehicle crash
A 56-year-old truck driver has been charged with reckless homicide after a nine-vehicle crash in Illinois killed three people last year.
The Louisiana man was charged with reckless homicide, aggravated reckless driving and other driving charges. Authorities have said that the man was too fatigued to be driving when he collided with slowed vehicles on Interstate 57.
The vehicles were slowed because of a construction run and three people were killed when their vehicle caught fire. Thirteen others were injured in the accident. The man has not made a plea in the case at this time.
Trucking accidents can cause serious injury to all people involved, our thoughts are with the families of those who lost their life in the accident.
