Cape Girardeau, Missouri – Redawn Milam was killed, and two others were injured in a two-truck accident on Interstate 55.
According to reports, the accident happened near mile marker 93 on southbound I-55. Both rigs were severally damaged, with one tractor rolling into the median with the other jackknifed across both lanes of traffic.
Authorities reported that Redawn Milan of Sturdivant, Missouri was a passenger in one of the trucks and died from his injuries. Both drivers of the trucks were injured. Blaine Milam suffered severe injuries and was transported to St Louis University Hospital. Eric Leake of Fulton, Missouri, was transported to St. Francis with minor injuries.
No information was immediately available concerning the cause of the crash
This accident will need to be investigated to ensure the family of the deceased and the injured victims receive answers
This is a complicated accident that will need to be further investigated by trained truck accident attorneys. The commercial trucking companies and their insurers are undoubtedly preparing for litigation and looking for all available angles to escape liability, all while the family of the deceased and the injured men simply seek to process the tragic events that unfolded.
A detailed investigation conducted by trained truck accident attorneys will ensure the information relevant to the accident is preserved and the commercial trucking companies and their insurers cannot escape liability for the harm caused by this crash. While it remains to be seen what caused this accident, it will be important for all potential causes to be considered, including dangerous road conditions, faulty equipment, defective products—such as a tire blowout—or simply negligence on part of one of the drivers. Whatever happened, the results are devastating, and the innocent victims of the crash deserve answers.
I extend my deepest condolences to Mr. Milan’s surviving family and pray that the injured motorists might make a full and speedy recovery.
