Watch Out at Those Accident Scenes!
AN PICKUP TRUCK SLAMMED INTO THE REAR of a ladder truck that was positioned at an accident scene near St. Louis, Missouri, early Thursday morning, killing the car's driver immediately.
The truck had responded to a previous crash on I-70 near St. Peters when the car struck it shortly after midnight Thursday morning. Police have not said if there were any other passengers in the auto.
There were two firefighters who suffered minor injuries and there was apparently heavy damage to the rear of the ladder truck.
It is unknown why the pickup driver drove into the parked firetruck of if he even applied his brakes.
