While a full accident investigation is still underway to determine the actual cause of the truck accident, one man is now dead after crossing paths with a semi-truck. The accident demolished the man’s car and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to initial reports from police officers at the scene the man was driving a small passenger vehicle and was attempting to merge onto a highway. While merging, the man failed to see the massive truck bearing down on him and simply pulled out in front. At the moment, alcohol is not suspected as a factor of the accident, but the investigation is still underway.
