Hulse H. Towry, an 84 year old resident of Fair Play, Missouri, died in a fatal Polk County Missouri trucking accident on October 17, 2011 at 11:50am. The Polk County truck accident began as Towry attempted to make a right turn onto Missouri Highway 32 near Fair Play, Missouri. As Towry entered the westbound lane of MO-32, a tractor trailer crashed into his vehicle. The tractor trailer was a 2004 Freightliner tractor trailer driven by Norman E. Counts of Sheldon, Missouri. The accident proved fatal for Towry. There were no reported injuries for any other parties.
Thousands of Americans lose their lives in tractor trailer accidents. According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 3,000 large trucks were involved in fatal traffic accidents in 2009. Missouri tractor trailer accidents are a serious threat to the safety of public roadways. The primary regulatory and enforcement arm of the federal government concerning the trucking industry is the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). The FMCSA is a segment of the United States Department of Transportation.
The FMCSA promulgates and enforces regulations on the trucking industry to preserve public safety. For example, the FMCSA enforces strict “hours of service” rules to prevent accidents caused by drowsy truck drivers. While most trucking companies are concerned with the safety of their drivers and the public at large, some negligent trucking companies pushed their truck drivers to drive excessive hours. Hours of service regulations limit the number of consecutive hours that truck drivers may operate large commercial vehicles like tractor trailers. Hours of service regulations prevent drowsy drivers from causing fatal Missouri truck accidents.
