Tragic accident that occurred on October 23 in Oregon, Missouri. A three-vehicle crash involving a Thayer Police Department SUV claimed the life of one person and left two others with injuries along U.S. Highway 63. A GMC Express van was stopped, preparing to make a left-hand turn. For reasons still under investigation, a Thayer Police Department SUV crashed into the rear of the van. The impact sent the van into the path of a southbound Freightliner tractor-trailer. After colliding with the van, the Freightliner struck several trees and crashed into a ravine. The truck subsequently caught fire and was completely burned. The truck driver, Shaun T. Hendrix was taken to the hospital for treatment. MSHP is leading an investigation into the crash. We send our thoughts and prayers to the victim.
