A Southern Illinois University senior was killed recently when his car was hit from behind by a semi truck in a semi truck accident. The student’s car was stopped behind another truck in a construction zone when the driver of the semi failed to stop, slamming into the back of his car and killing him. The driver of the semi truck was ticketed for failing to reduce speed and admitted that he did not see the car because he was adjusting the radio. There is no word yet if a wrongful death lawsuit will be filed in this case.
