A chain-reaction car and truck accident on Interstate 57 left three people dead and 13 more injured.
The accident occurred as a truck driver looked down at a map while driving and struck a car in front of him. The vehicle in front of him had stopped because of a construction site in the road. The SUV that was hit then caught fire after the collision and killed all three people inside.
The thirteen others were transported to the hospital, but their current condition is unknown. The horrific accident is still being investigated by officials.
Truck accidents can cause serious harm and injury, our thoughts and condolences are with the victims and their family and friends.
