Dump Truck on Road

State Patrol Preliminary Report

A 2004 Toyota Sienna minivan was traveling on Capital Boulevard when it was hit from behind by a 2004 Freightliner dump truck.

The teacher, a 42-year-old woman, was killed in the accident, tragically leaving behind a husband and two children. The dump truck pushed the minivan into the back of a 2011 Freightliner tractor trailer, which then rear ended a 2015 Honda. The driver of the Honda was not injured, while the drivers of the dump truck and semi-trailer were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Charges are pending against the driver of the dump truck, who has a checkered driving history, according to news reports. In the past, he was convicted of driving without a license, and has two pending drug charges.
