A vacant 2018 Peterbilt 337 trash truck was parked on the right shoulder of the road and partially blocking the westbound lane, according to the report.

The 2016 GMC Terrain driven by Roney struck the rear of the empty truck, causing her vehicle to rotate and cross the center of the roadway.

A third vehicle, a 2010 Toyota Prius driven by Aisha Sullivan, 42, of Bonne Terre was approaching in the opposite direction from Roney and struck the rear of her vehicle. Two passengers of Sullivan’s vehicle, Jack Adkins, 74, and Julie Adkins, 72, both of Oregon, were injured in the collision; Jack received moderate injuries while Julie received minor injuries. Both were transported by ambulance to Mercy Hospital-Jefferson.
