John Perkins Jr. was driving a Kia Sportage along the northbound lanes of Interstate 45 north of Buffalo, when the accident occurred. According to officials, an 18-wheeler ahead of the Kia crashed after skidding on an icy roadway, leaving the back end of the trailer laying across the left lane of travel.

Perkins maneuvered his Kia to try to avoid the trailer but was not successful. After colliding with the trailer of the first tractor-trailer, the Kia hit a second 18-wheeler that was in the right lane.

As a result of the accident, Perkins sustained serious injuries and was promptly transported to receive medical attention. There were no other confirmed injuries and the incident is still being investigated.
