      MI truck driver acquitted in 2011 triple fatal crash



      According to the Toledo Blade, a Michigan truck driver has been acquitted on charges connected to a 2011 crash that killed 3 people.


      Friday night, a jury found 66-year-old John Tucker of Flint not guilty on three counts each of vehicular homicide and vehicular manslaughter.


      68-year-old James South of Monclova Township, 52-year-old Dale Barnhiser and 40-year-old Jodi Lubas of Maumee died in a chain reaction crash along I-475 at the Manley Road overpass in August 2011.


      Officials said Tucker was the last in a number of vehicles that became involved in the wreck.


      Prosecutors argued he should have been able to see the vehicles in the roadway.
