Miller’s liquefied petroleum gas truck was following behind a quad axle truck hauling livestock and a school bus was in front of the livestock truck. The school bus slowed to make a left turn onto CR 1250E but Miller did not see the livestock truck slowing down or the truck’s brake lights.

The driver of the livestock truck pulled over to see if Miller was OK but left the scene. No information on the livestock truck was available but Miller said he did not believe the truck had working brake lights.
