Mount Vernon, MO — A truck driver was killed on Tuesday afternoon (July 31, 2013) after a fatal rollover accident about 3 miles north of Mount Vernon. According to the MSHP, 47-year old David Walters was identified as the truck driver who was killed and the accident happened at about 12:25 p.m. on Tuesday.
Walter was driving a fuel truck along Route M, troopers with the Missouri Highway Patrol said, when he lost control for unknown reasons. His fuel truck somehow lost control, they suspect, and swerved into a fence. The truck overturned and landed on its driver’s side, killing Walters at the scene.
The cause is still being investigated and a large cleanup project followed that day as nearby 1,000 gallons of mixed fuel spilled from the truck.
