Sept. 22 accident report

No citations were issued following an accident on Sept. 15 in the Pilot Travel Center’s parking lot, 2010 West Clay St.

According to an Osceola police report, Brandy Akin of Big Spring, Texas, was attempting to head to the fuel pumps in a 2021 Freightliner. Akin observed another semi had not fully parked in their spot, so she attempted to pull out in the direction of Clay Street to come back into the fuel pump area. Akin attempted to back up to assist in turning the other direction, and in doing so struck the front left bumper of a legally parked 2022 Freightliner, pushing the bumper into the headlamp and cracking the front bumper.

Damage is estimated at $1,000 to the 2021 Freightliner, and $10,000 to the 2022 Freightliner.
