Semi-Truck Accident Injures Michael Deraad and Randall Krzmarzick on Highway 14 in Sleepy Eye, Minnesota

Sleepy Eye, Minnesota — A collision between a semi-truck and a farm tractor occurred at 12:21 p.m. on Friday on Highway 14.

The semi-truck driver, Michael Deraad, sustained life-threatening injuries, and the farm tractor driver sustained non-life-threatening injuries. Both were taken to the hospital for treatment.

No further details have been released.

Thoughts on Semi-truck collisions

We do not know who or what caused this accident. All we know is that two people are hurt, one seriously. With so little detail provided, many questions remain unanswered. Who collided with whom? Was one of the drivers distracted or speeding? Was there a mechanical issue involved? Were any traffic laws broken? Were either driver able to avoid the accident but failed to do so?

Answers to these questions are important. Two people have been injured, and their lives changed. All wrongdoing must be accounted for.

May all the facts continue to come out.
