Wilfred Solano, a 56 year old man from St. Joseph, Missouri was injured in a Buchanan County Missouri tractor trailer accident on December 13, 2011. The early morning Missouri truck accident occurred as Solano was driving a 2004 Honda Civic on southbound I-29, 1 mile south off St. Joseph, Missouri. The towed unit of a 2003 Freightliner tractor trailer collided with Solano’s Honda.
The Honda spun around on the interstate highway after the initial impact, and then struck the towed unit of the Freightliner for a second time. The Honda stopped on its wheels in the middle of the interstate at the conclusion of the Buchanan County Missouri tractor trailer accident. The Freightliner was brought to a controlled stop on the shoulder of the highway by out of state truck driver Kenneth I. Harris.
Solano was transported to Heartland Regional Medical Center for medical treatment for his injuries. Solano’s Honda was totaled in the Missouri truck accident. The Honda was towed away from the scene of the accident. The truck driver was not injured and the tractor trailer was driven for the scene.
