Truck Versus Moped Accident
At approximately 5:52 AM on Thursday, April 12th, Drew County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to an accident about four and a half miles west of Monticello where a truck reportedly hit a moped scooter. A witness at the scene told the deputy that the driver of the scooter had driven off of the road onto the shoulder. When the truck pulled up beside the scooter, the driver of the scooter reentered the roadway in front of the truck causing the truck to strike the scooter, pinning the rear wheel under the front bumper of the truck. The operator of the scooter was knocked off of the scooter after it and the truck travelled several hundred feet before coming to a complete stop.
The driver of the scooter was transported to Jefferson Regional Medical Center where he is being treated for his injuries. Familes members reported to the Sheriff's Department that he is satisfactory condition.
