One person dead in truck-semi accident near Palmyra

Posted: Updated:

A rural Palmyra man has died following a collision between a pickup truck and semi near Palmyra.

Marion County Sheriff Jimmy Shinn says Robert Bross, of rural Palmyra, died at the scene when he tried to exit East Main Cross Street onto the northbound lanes of US 61.

Shinn says a semi traveling in the southbound lanes collided with Bross' truck.

Shinn said while the road conditions were partially snow covered and slushy, it cannot be determined whether the road conditions played a part in the crash.
