Kevin Bailey Killed in Semi-Truck Accident on Highway 191 in Four Corners, MT


Four Corners, MT — Police identified Kevin Bailey as the man who was killed in an accident with a semi-truck near Four Corners, Montana, on Sunday, October 5, 2014. The accident happened around 2:30 in the morning.

According to local reports, Bailey was headed north on Highway 191, just a few miles south of Four Corners. As he was driving, he crossed the road’s center line and crashed his pickup truck into a semi traveling in the opposite direction. The collision pushed Bailey’s truck over, and it came to rest on its roof.

Police say Bailey was trapped inside. He was declared dead at the scene.

Speed did not play a role in the accident. Police are still waiting on test results to see whether or not Bailey had been drinking at the time.

Commentary

There are still a few things we don’t know about this accident. Police are currently waiting to see whether or not the victim had been drinking at the time of the crash. Montana’s laws are similar to those in Texas which say that, if a person is served alcohol while visibly intoxicated, a bar can be held liable if that person goes out and gets into an accident. This accident happened around 2:30 in the morning. Accidents involving alcohol typically occur late at night or very early in the morning. However, alcohol obviously isn’t the only reason an accident can occur at this time of night. It’s possible that the victim fell asleep at the wheel. As things stand now, it appears that the victim may be at fault for this accident, but it would be wise to hold off judgement until all the facts are in.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
