THREE KILLED IN MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTPosted by Jack Howser on Thursday, August 29th, 2013 @ 4:44 pm.
WHITE CO.—A truck-motorcycle accident out on Epworth Road south of Carmi has left a triple fatality in its wake.
We’ve been in touch with dispatch at the jail in Carmi, in an effort to learn more, but we’ve been advised that most of the White County Sheriff’s Department is at the scene, along with emergency crews, fire, EMS, city and state police.
We did have it confirmed that the accident occurred at 3:13 p.m., and that the two from the cycle are dead, the operator and a passenger.
The driver of the truck the cycle collided with (a gravel truck) was also killed when it left the road, crashed into a line of trees and then into a ditch.
We have no identities yet; a representative of the coroner’s office is on the scene.
When we learn more, we’ll post it; keep checking back.
