Upon arrival, Fire and Police personnel found a passenger car driven by a single occupant that collided with the back of a large waste collection truck. The truck was stopped in the lanes of traffic after experiencing a mechanical failure when the drive shaft came off the vehicle. As the truck was stopped, it was struck from behind by the passenger car at estimated highway speeds.
The driver of the passenger car was transported to a nearby hospital with serious, life-threatening injuries. The driver was stabilized and admitted to the Intensive Care Unit. In the early hours of December 1st, 2019, the driver succumbed to injuries related to the collision.
