Yesterday three people were tragically killed when an 18 wheeler crashed into traffic stopped due to bridge construction. Two of the victims, Anthony and Kimberly Brandon, lived in Bedford. A third, Darryl Hoosier, lived in Louisiana. After slamming into these two cars, the tractor trailer crashed into a third vehicle driven by a Floriday couple. The 18 wheeler driver never applied his brakes.
This is the SECOND fatal collision at this bridge in the last 30 days. A total of five people have already died as the result of the delay of KKM Construction of Texarkana, Arkansas in finishing the project.
