Sadly, a deadly semi crash that happened Thursday in the Lake of the Ozarks, MO took the life of a mother and her daughter. In addition, the crash happened on U.S. 54 at Highway W, and caused a seven-car accident. Likewise, the accident occurred when a semi and a few other cars were stopped at a stoplight when suddenly another tractor-trailer came crashing in to them. The semi came from the westbound lane, and slammed into a row of vehicles, which crushed them in between itself and another tractor-trailer.
Tragically, Robin Dinwiddie and her daughter, Kendra O'Leary were killed instantly in the horrific crash. A witness that was one lane over described the noise from the crash as nothing they had ever heard. Likewise, there were dozens of pieces of shrapnel flying through the air after the horrific crash. The driver of the semi that caused the crash will be charged with involuntary manslaughter although there still is an investigation pending. This is not the first traffic violation of the semi driver as well. Please click here to learn more.
