Taylor Lee Chance Killed in Semi-Truck Accident in Humboldt County, IA

Humboldt County, IA — November 8, 2023, Taylor Lee Chance was killed following a semi-truck accident at around 5:00 p.m. along 110th Street.

Authorities said in preliminary statements that the crash occurred outside of Ottosen and West Bend at the intersection of 110th Street and Birch Avenue.

It appears that 29-year-old Taylor Lee Chance was in a concrete mixer truck going eastbound along 110th. While crossing Birch, authorities say that a southbound semi-trailer failed to yield, and the two trucks collided.

Chance sustained fatal injuries as a result of the accident. The other driver had to be flown to the hospital. There are no additional details available about the crash at this time.

It's obviously serious to see authorities say a truck driver failed to yield leading to this collision. But if this intersection is the same as the images I looked up, I can't help wondering how exactly this happened. Most recent images I can find show a pretty clear intersection with clearly-marked stop signs, and unless there was bad weather authorities failed to mention, the sun would have still been out.

So how exactly did a professional truck driver somehow enter the path of another large commercial truck? Shouldn't that be just about the easiest kind of vehicle to spot?
