One Killed in Crash with 18-Wheeler on I-70 near Myersville, MD
Myersville, MD — January 23, 2023, one person died in a collision with a tractor-trailer at a rest stop on Interstate 70 near Myersville.
Authorities say the incident happened around 8:30 p.m. along I-70 close to the Myersville rest stop. Preliminary investigation suggests only that the victim was driving a Chevy Cruze when he somehow collided with the back of an International semi-truck's trailer.
The Chevy driver was pronounced dead at the scene. No other injuries were reported.
The investigation is ongoing. No further information is currently available.
Preliminary reports can't (or just don't) offer very much insight about what happened here, but I've learned that people are sometimes too quick to blame anyone who rear-ends another vehicle. In some cases investigators conclude that person made a mistake, but that should never be taken for granted before all the facts are in.
Someone lost their life in this accident and that's more than enough reason to be sure their loved ones get the whole truth of how and why that occurred. I hope authorities get them satisfactory answers before all is said and done.
