Littlefield, AZ (July 9, 2019) – Authorities have been working on the investigation of an accident where two tractor-trailers collided, which led to injuries.
The accident took place initially on Saturday when two tractor-trailers collided with one another and tore both trailers open, leading to severe damages. Police claim that masses of corn chips were sent across the roadway, making a mess close to 6:00 p.m.
Authorities said that a 2019 Freightliner was headed north going about 65 mph and failed to observe that traffic stopped in both lanes. When he hit the brakes, his tractor-trailer ran into the rear right of another tractor-trailer.
The impact was so forceful that 10 cases of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos were sent scattered across the roadway.
The driver in one of the trucks was treated for lacerations at the scene and then taken to the hospital. The driver of the 2019 Freightliner that did not stop was cited for failure to control his speed.
The investigation into the accident is ongoing at this time.
