A trucker who’s been indicted for manslaughter for the deadly December I-70 crash that killed a Boone County Fire assistant chief could be arraigned Monday afternoon.
64-year-old Kevin Brunson, who’s been indicted on one count of involuntary manslaughter, was booked into the Boone County jail on Friday afternoon. Missouri state troopers say an ambulance and Boone County Fire Protection District assistant chief Bryant Gladney’s vehicles had their emergency lights activated on December 22, when they were struck by Brunson’s tractor trailer.
The Patrol’s crash report says the truck driver failed to slow. A Boone County judge has set Brunson’s bond at $250,000. The court has also banned Brunson from operating any commercial motor vehicle.
The crash happened at the 135-mile marker, just east of Columbia.
