Harrison: In this collision the driver of the F-350 Ford pickup truck dies when a collision happens with a 2003 Freightliner Semi. I drive an F-350; it's a big truck but still no match for a Freightliner. The Freightliner's driver, Kevin Bostwick, 37 from Missouri Valley, Iowa was injured the other driver killed in the collision. This is about the third collision today where someone crosses over the center line after going off the hard surface and overcorrecting trying to regain control, only to end up hitting an ongoing semi-truck head-on. It's tragic really and we will probably never know why the F-350 driver lost control. It's my opinion a jury would find for the semi-truck driver and find the F-350 driver clearly at fault. Like the Freemont accident above the semi-truck driver should act to preserve evidence of the crash with photographs and have someone, a lawyer, review his workers' compensation claim, if any.
