A Neosho man was killed in a crash involving three tractor-trailers in Blaine County on Monday, January 25th. The accident occurred on US-270, 12 miles west of Watonga, at a railroad crossing.
Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported one semi-truck, driven by 58-year-old Gerald Ostowiecki of Cheyenne, Wyoming, was transporting hazardous materials traveling southbound when he properly stopped at a railroad crossing. Another semi driven by 29-year-old Sean Bush of Neosho, Missouri, struck Ostowiecki’s vehicle in the rear. The crash caused Bush to cross into the northbound lanes of traffic, striking another semi driven by 62-year-old Robert Palacio of Garden City, Kansas head on.
Sadly, Bush was pronounced dead at the scene. Palacio was transported to OU Medical Center to be treated for his injuries. Ostowiecki was not injured.
