Authorities have reported that two individuals had suffered fatalities and one was seriously injured in the Feltonville crash, though it is not clear what vehicles they were operating at the time.
While there is no further word as to what caused this deadly crash, truck accidents like this are common and deadly. When a vehicle rear-ends a truck, it can wind up directly beneath it.
