As previous postings in this blog have discussed, it is important that drivers of commercial motor vehicles exercise an increased level of care when they are traveling the roadways of Missouri and all other states across the country. However, even if they do exercise this level of care, things can go wrong and lead to car accidents. This may be what happened in a recent car collision that occurred in Missouri and left four individuals dead.
According to authorities, the accident occurred when a dump truck and a passenger vehicle collided head-on. The dump truck was traveling northbound when one of its tires went flat. This caused the driver to lose control of his vehicle, veer into oncoming traffic and strike the passenger vehicle head-on.
