Carlisle, PA – Lakenya Shorter Killed in Fatal Truck Accident on MS-18

Carlisle, PA (May 18, 2022) – A woman was killed in a fatal truck accident that took place on a highway in Carlisle on Wednesday afternoon, May 18. 

According to Mississippi Highway Patrol officials, the accident happened around 12:20 p.m. on MS-18 around the area of Valley of the Moon Road. Police confirmed that 28-year-old Lakenya Shorter was traveling south in the area when her vehicle was struck by a Windstar Log truck. The driver of the vehicle was identified as 61-year-old Jackie McGee. 

Paramedics, fire crews, and several other local responders were dispatched to the scene to help those in need. Shorter was severely injured and pronounced dead at the scene due to injuries. Nobody else was hurt as a result of the accident. 

The roadway was blocked in the area of the accident for an extended period of time. Police quickly worked to clear the scene so traffic could return to normal. 

No further details have been released but the Mississippi Highway Patrol continues to investigate the accident at this time. 

We offer our condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. 

Fatal Truck Accidents in Mississippi

Truck accidents are known for being some of the most severe accidents that occur on our roads in Mississippi and beyond. These accidents can happen virtually anywhere but our major highways are some of the most common areas. Hundreds of lives are lost in accidents each year. Though fewer are lost as a result of truck accidents, they still happen and cause extensive harm to those involved. Because trucks are tens of thousands of pounds heavier than other vehicles on our roads, they are capable of causing some of the most catastrophic harm when an accident takes place. If you have sustained the loss of a loved one in a truck accident, you should be prepared to speak with an attorney that you can rely on. 

Facing the aftermath of a truck accident can be a challenging thing to do, especially if you have lost someone close to you. Your best option for recovery is to speak with a Carlisle truck accident attorney who has handled these types of claims in the past. As you are grieving the immense loss of a loved one, you may wonder how you will afford to pay the bills that continue piling up. Speaking with a Carlisle wrongful death attorney can leave you in a better position as you move forward with a truck accident claim against another party.
