Published October 21, 2005
WORTH -- A Gary truck driver was struck and killed by another driver's rig Thursday on the Tri-State Tollway in Worth, authorities said.
Michael Buchanan, 53, was checking the straps on the sides of his truck about 9:30 a.m. when another truck clipped the end of his vehicle and continued on to strike him, police said. Buchanan was stopped along the southbound lanes of the highway, where he was checking his cargo on the traffic side.
He was pronounced dead at 9:53 a.m. at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Illinois State Police Master Sgt. Glenn DeVries said.
Alcohol and drugs were not believed to be a factor in the accident, which occurred near 115th Street, DeVries said. The driver of the truck that struck Buchanan had not been issued a citation, but the crash remained under investigation late Thursday.
