UPDATED @ 9:02 AM
The accident was in the parking lot of Love's Truck Stop in Ozark.
Two of the trucks were parked in the parking lot. The third truck was coming around like from the gas pumps and must have gotten distracted. He struck the first semi on the tires which knocked it into the second semi. And that semi was knocked so hard it was knocked into the curb.
The Entrappment came from the first parked semi. The trucks were parked like overnight parking. It was thought the driver was inside the sleeper asleep. The tractor was locked and they could not get anyone to respond form inside. The driver was not inside the truck stop.
Emergency units made forced entry into the tractor only to find no one was inside. But forced entry was required because of the impact and it being so hard one semi was knocked into another, and one into the curb.
When no one was found Love's Truck Stop was able to contact the company to call the driver.
