Speeding trucker kills mother and her two babies

People in Missouri who have commercial driving licenses are expected to take the responsibility of safety seriously every time they climb up into their rigs. Unfortunately, that does not always seem to happen as too many truckers continue to display an utter disregard for their own safety and the safety of others. Fatigued truckers, drunk truckers and more expose innocent people to risks and losses that they should never have to endure.

One tragic example of this can be seen in the case of a trucker that rammed into other vehicles that had slowed up because of construction on a freeway. According to a report in the Indy Star, the incident occurred in the middle of the day on a Sunday along a stretch of Interstate 465 in Indianapolis. A truck driver was reported to be operating his semi-truck at an excessive rate of speed as he approached the slowed vehicles in front of him. Instead of slowing himself, he rammed into them, causing a multi-vehicle crash that left debris scattered along as much as three-fourths of a mile of the freeway.

The vehicle he hit first was carrying a woman and her twin babies who were only 18 months old. All three of them were killed in the crash. Another seven people were taken to a hospital for treatment. Details of their conditions are not known at this time.

The trucker has been charged with multiple criminal offenses and an investigation is ensuing. He is from Missouri where he has multiple violations on record, including a braking violation from this year.
