REAR ENDED BY TRUCK – MN CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER
The Minnesota State Patrol reported that a 28-year-old Bloomington man was killed when the Chevrolet Camaro he was driving southbound on Highway 169 was struck from behind by a truck half a mile south of Interstate 494. The State Patrol report says a Ford F-350 Superduty that had been trailing the Camaro approached the car as it decelerated in the right-hand shoulder, made contact and drove over the Camaro before overturning and coming to rest on its roof. The Camaro came to rest facing northbound in the ditch and the driver was killed. The driver of the Ford truck sustained injuries that are not life-threatening. The report says it’s unknown whether the car driver had been wearing a seatbelt when he was hit by the truck; it was also unknown whether alcohol played a role in the part of the driver of the Ford truck that caused the rear end collision.
