Video: 18 Wheeler Wreck Claims Two Lives
TUPELO, Miss. (WCBI)-Two people are dead after an 18 wheeler crashes into a car, pushing it into a Tupelo business. It was around 10:45 this morning when police say a semi trailer, parked on Mitchell street, rolled across south gloster, slammed into a car pushing it into the offices of Acceptance Auto Insurance. Lee County Coroner Carolyn Green confirms 20 year-old Olida Acosta of Shannon and her 3-year-old Daughter Vianett Castillo were killed in the accident. The mishap kept traffic backed up for hours on one of the city’s busiest streets. Unconfirmed reports say the driver of the 18 wheeler had parked the truck, walked inside a nearby business to let them know they had a delivery, and the truck rolled across the street. The truck’s driver was not injured. No one in the office was hurt either.
