Brooke Morris Injured near Andover, KS by Semi-Truck Accident


Andover, KS — A young man from Murdock, 18-year old Brooke Morris, was injured this past Wednesday afternoon after his Ford Mustang was hit by a semi-truck in a serious accident. Police said that a semi-truck may have run a stop sign and caused a T-bone accident between the two vehicles on Highway 254.

This was around 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon, September 16, 2015.

According to the reports released by the police, Morris had been driving his Mustang west along the highway while a man named Dwight Henry, 70, was driving a semi-truck north on Butler Road.

As they came to the intersection, it looks like Henry’s semi-truck ran his stop sign and pulled into Morris’ path, causing a collision.

The accident left Morris and Henry with injuries and they were both taken to hospitals. However, it’s not clear how badly they were hurt.

Commentary:

I’m a little curious to learn more about what really happened here because if you look at the maps above, it’s very obvious that east-west traffic on that highway does not have a stop sign. If I were driving a truck with a trailer, I would make sure I had plenty of time to get up to speed or clear the intersection before pulling in front of another car.

But beyond whatever consequences this trucker might face, his employer may actually be hit the hardest. At the end of the day, they’re going to be responsible for their driver’s actions, including ones that lead to accidents. I hope more details are uncovered here because I’m really at a loss as to how someone can misjudge oncoming traffic like that. Perhaps there’s something here we’re not seeing.

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.
