In the early morning hours of April 10th, Charles Dameron, 41, of Clarksville, was crossing the intersection at US 61 and White Wildlife Road when the school bus he was driving was struck by a dump truck operated by Luther Jennings, 64, of New London. The bus received significant damage, but Mr. Dameron was thankfully unharmed. Unfortunately, Mr. Jennings suffered moderate injuries. The dump truck also received significant damage, and it had to be towed from the scene. Mr. Jennings transported to Mercy Hospital-Lincoln by the Lincoln county ambulance service, and later released.
Car accidents can be traumatic, particularly those involving industrial vehicles or heavy equipment. We at the law offices of Kevin J. Roach wish Mr. Jennings and his family a thorough and complete recovery from his injuries.
