Reacis Amilio Killed in Truck Accident in Prairie County, AR

Prairie County, AR -- February 17, 2023, Reacis Amilio was killed as the result of an accident involving a commercial truck.

Investigators said that the incident happened at approximately 6:47 a.m. along I-40 at the rest area outside of Hazen.

Details say that 18-year-old Reacis Amilio was in a Dodge traveling eastbound along I-40. After exiting, police believe that Amilio's vehicle lost control somehow before crashing into a Freightliner truck that was "parked."

Due to the collision, Amilio sustained fatal injuries. No other injuries were reported due to the crash, and investigations are ongoing.

Something that has yet to be cleared up is exactly where this truck was parked and how the victim's car "lost control." These rest areas see crashes from time to time, and an occurrence more common than people realize is commercial trucks park along the ramp instead of pulling all the way into the rest area. I don't currently see a reason to believe that led to this crash, but it would take more thorough investigations to rule it out.

Could it be that something like that happened here? Did the victim's vehicle lose control for unusual reasons that require more thorough investigations? I've just seen too many situations like this where authorities are quick to blame a teenager for a crash, and in doing so, they overlook something important. My hope is authorities here are being more prudent than that.
