The driver of the pickup truck stayed at the scene and cooperated with investigators, and was visibly upset.
“He’s pretty shaken up. He was on his way from work, I don’t think anybody can anticipate this so it’s pretty tough on him and will be later when he has time to reflect on it,” KCPD Sergeant Bill Mahoney said.
Alcohol has been ruled out as a cause of the accident.
