Six vehicles were involved in an I-55 that took one man’s life Saturday evening in New Madrid County.
It happened a little past 5 o’clock when a semi driven by Kenneth Alford from Florida slid into another semi.
Both of the trucks then caught fire, and then Alford hit another vehicle driven by 65-year-old Clyde Griffin, and ran off the roadway.
Alford was later pronounced dead at the scene, while Griffin’s passenger, 63-year-old Carolyn Farrenburg, was airlifted to Saint Francis Medical Center for serious injuries.
Griffin hit two other cars after Alford collided with his vehicle.
