the car driven by 16-year-old Elizabeth Eidson hit the trash truck from behind. The trash truck
had been stopped in the eastbound lane at the time. Eidson’s car then struck a pedestrian worker
from the trash truck before travelling off the roadway. Eidson was pronounced dead at the scene.
The trash truck worker suffered moderate injuries and was treated at a hospital in Jefferson City
