Antwerp, NY – Driver inattention purportedly led to a fatal chain reaction crash that left six people dead last month. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), police say the driver of an 18-wheeler, James Mills Jr., failed to pay attention to caution signs prior to triggering the crash that involved six vehicles that were stopping for a road construction project in upstate New York.
One of the vehicles involved in the crash, an SUV, exploded into flames. Among those killed were an elementary school speech therapist and her two children.
Trucks operated by the owner of the tractor-trailor, MBM Customized Foodservice Distribution, based in Rocky Mount, N.C., have reportedly been linked to 75 accidents in the past two years.
