One person was killed and five others were injured as a result of a truck accident that occurred when the truck driver lost control and drove into a crowd of people that were attending a livestock auction.
According to officials, the accident occurred Monday morning during a horse auction at Kalona Sales Barn when the truck’s driver suffered from some type of medical issue that caused his foot to press down on the accelerator.
He lost control of the truck and struck seven people and a tree before traveling one block further and finally coming to a stop. One person was pronounced dead at the scene and five others were taken to the hospital to seek treatment for injuries sustained.
