For unknown reasons, the 18-wheeler failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection and collided with the front left side of a second 18-wheeler which had been traveling southbound on S.H.18. The collision caused the first 18-wheeler to veer left and come to a stop south-facing and upright on the right-hand shoulder of the highway. The second 18 wheeler veered to its right, coming to a stop between the shoulder of the highway and the train tracks. The trailer was reportedly upright, but the cab was resting on the driver's side.

The two people in the first 18-wheeler and a third person—a 42-year-old man—in the second 18-wheeler all suffered injuries as a result of the accident; the 42-year-old woman's injuries were reportedly severe. They were all transported to local medical facilities by EMS for treatment.

The accident is still under investigation. Weather and road conditions in the area at the time of the accident were reportedly clear and dry. No additional information is available at this time.
