Erratically swerving tractor trailer causes fatal crash on I-70 in Missouri
On I-70 in Missouri, last Friday a tractor trailer that had been speeding and swerving erratically for miles crashed into two other vehicles, killing two people and critically injuring a third. At least two witnesses reported that they had narrowly avoided being hit by the tractor trailer. One said the truck driver “was driving nutty as heck.” Initial news reports did not indicate a possible cause of the trucker’s behavior.
