Officers arrived to find a tractor trailer crashed, on its side, in the roadway. The driver of the truck was pinned inside.
Crews from Consolidated Fire District No. 2 and Johnson County Med-Act extricated the man and rushed him to a Kansas City, MO trauma center in critical condition.
Sources tell Operation 100 News that police are investigating the possibility that the man suffered a seizure, causing the accident. There were also reports of a possible domestic issue, involving the driver's daughter. The daughter was apparently dropped off by her father before the accident. She is currently with police and said to be unharmed.
The truck was loaded with beer, some of which broke through the trailer's roof and spilled onto the roadway.
