Truck strikes two vehicles on U.S. 30

PLYMOUTH -- An early morning three-vehicle wreck at the intersection of U.S. 30 and King Road resulted when a truck driver didn't see traffic ahead of him slow down for a traffic light.

Detective Sgt. Duane Culp of the Marshall County Sheriff's Department said the accident happened at 7:30 a.m. Thursday when Michael Johnson, 60, of Lacresent, Minn., was westbound on U.S. 30, east of the intersection with King Road.

A vehicle in front of Johnson's semi-truck, a Ford pickup truck driven by James Read, 56, of Bourbon, was slowing down for the vehicle that had stopped in front of him at the light. That third vehicle, a Ford Freestar, was driven by Amanda Wood, 34, of Plymouth.
