Runaway Camper Kills One, Injures Three
A truck wreck which Lincoln County Sheriff Curt Folger called “a very, very tragic accident” was probably not accidental at all.
While eastbound on U.S. 150, a camper detached from the large truck hauling it. The camper rumbled across the median and smacked into an SUV, killing the driver. Three other occupants, including a 10-month-old infant who was airlifed to a nearby hospital, were seriously injured. Even though the SUV driver took evasive action, “there wasn’t nothing they could do,” the sheriff said.
The two people inside the truck were not injured and none of the names were released.
