He was driving west on Rocky Ford Road at 12:38 p.m. Friday when the incident occurred, reports stated. When he turned onto Highway 25, his 2007 Peterbilt truck struck the tail end of a 2014 Freightliner being driven north on Highway 25 by Michael Bernard Allen, 45, of Brookstone Road in Hephzibah, reports stated.

Neither driver was injured, but a passenger in the 2007 Peterbilt, Elizabeth Juliano, 34, also of White Pine Drive in Morenci, suffered minor injuries, according to reports.
