The accident happened around noon, at the intersection of U.S. 41 and Inner Perimeter Road. A semi-truck reportedly blew through a intersection, striking a red car, jumping over that car into the opposite lane, then struck a Ford Ranger. The impact was hard enough to cause the semi truck to overturn and drag the Ford Ranger into the woods on the side of the road.
At least one person was tragically confirmed to have been killed in the collision. A life flight helicopter also landed in the area and took one person from the scene. The investigation into the accident is ongoing at this time.
