Aaron Flippo Killed Riding his Scooter in a Dump-Truck Accident on Ky. 313 in Radcliff, Kentucky

Radcliff, Kentucky — A man died when his motorized scooter collided with a dump truck. The incident took place Tuesday morning on Ky. 313.

According to reports, the scooter was traveling northbound in the emergency lane when it cut into the path of a 2019 Fright Liner dump truck.

The driver of the scooter, Aaron A. Flippo, died from his injuries.

The dump truck driver was unharmed.

Thoughts on Pedestrian and Nonoccupant Semi-Truck Accidents

Every year, semi-trucks kill hundreds of pedestrians and nonoccupants (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration). Due to their weight and size, trucks need to be extra vigilant on the roadways. Was this driver taking proper precautions here?

When someone passes away, the family deserves to know exactly what happened. Accidents like this can often be avoided, but distracted or speeding drivers fail to react in time.

It is not fair to conclude the deceased is entirely at fault for allegedly cutting in front of a dump truck. An investigation by trained professionals will determine all the factors that led to this accident, what the trucker was doing, and if the trucker was distracted, speeding, or impaired. An investigation will also answer if the trucker had time to prevent the accident.

May all the facts come to light, and may the family receive the answers they deserve.
