Tractor Trailer Crash Sends One to Hospital

Jerry Cousins, 74, was hospitalized after a Missouri tractor trailer accident on Highway 43 near Joplin, Missouri.

According to a Joplin Globe report, Cousins was driving a tractor-trailer northbound on the highway when the accident occurred. A second vehicle, driven by Caleb Vermillion, 28, was ahead of Cousins’ truck. Vermillion was attempting a left turn when Cousins’ truck hit Vermillion’s vehicle.

Cousins was taken to St. John’s Regional Medical Center for treatment. No information was given about Vermillion’s injuries or if he sustained any.

The details gathered so far about this tractor-trailer crash are not enough to determine who was at fault. If further investigation from local authorities reveals that one of the drivers was negligent and caused the injury accident, a Missouri truck accident attorney could be called by the injured party to recover damages.
