The accident happened sometime Wednesday morning on the westbound side of Highway 152 near Highway 33. Two pickup trucks pulling hay rakes were attempting a right turn from Highway 152 onto San Juan Road when a semi-truck rear ended one of the pickup trucks. The impact forced the pickup truck into the other pickup.
The driver of the pickup truck in the middle was pinned between the semi truck and the second pickup truck, and was tragically killed in the accident. The driver of the second pickup truck was hospitalized with injuries ranging from minor to moderate, and the semi truck driver was uninjured. The accident remains under investigation at this time.
