We see the devastating consequences of big rig trucking accidents on a daily basis.  While the numbers indicate that trucking accidents and fatalities are down in Missouri, as well as other parts of the country, we know there is a long way to go before we can declare the roads are safe.

On Sunday in south Johnson County, a semi-truck jack-knifed on 69 highway, causing the truck to rollover the median in a violent crash.  The accident, which happened around 7:30 in the morning, forced the highway to be closed down for several hours in both directions between 199th street and 207th street.  No one was injured in the accident.
