Two serious Missouri tractor trailer accidents in the same day have left one dead and another hospitalized.
In the more serious incident, Maudie Ham, 73, was driving her 1997 Saturn northbound on Interstate 55. A 1997 International tractor trailer, driven by Jerry Pitts, 44, was following behind her. Pitts attempted to overtake Ham’s car on the highway at the same time Ham tried to make a turn toward the crossover. Ham’s car was struck on the driver’s side and was overturned in the median. The big rig ran off the right side of the roadway and came to rest on the shoulder.
Ham was pronounced dead at the scene. Pitts was uninjured.
The other tractor trailer crash, while not as serious, still sent a Missouri man to the hospital.
Scott Crosser, 23, was driving his 1997 Ford Taurus eastbound on I-44 at the time of the crash. He was passing a 1997 Kenworth tractor trailer, driven by Marc Sadler, 45, when the two vehicles clipped each other. Crosser’s car came in contact with the left side of the trailer, slid out of control off the right side of the highway, and overturned.
Crosser was taken to St. John’s Hospital for treatment. Sadler was uninjured.
Our thoughts are with the families of the victims and those involved in each case. Hopefully Crosser can make a full recovery.
