Officer Kade Eggum Injured in Truck Accident Eagan, MN

According to officials, Officer Kade Eggum was in a patrol car and was in the process of responding to an emergency call. Details say that Officer Eggum's emergency lights were on as he attempted to merge toward northbound lanes from a median crossover. Doing so, a northbound semi-truck crashed into the officer's vehicle.

Officer Eggum was taken to a hospital with unspecified injuries. No other injuries were reported. At this time, additional details are unavailable.

If it's true the officer had emergency lights on, one has to wonder why the truck driver wasn't able to avoid them. Those lights would be plenty visible while it's dark out unless there were possible weather conditions impairing visibility. That's not to say that the truck driver must not have been paying attention, though that's obvious worth consideration. It just seems there is a lot of information yet to be made clear that can reasonably explain why this crash happened and how it could have been avoided.
