While tending to the victims, a second motorist lost control of their vehicle in the same area of the road and drove through the first crash scene, striking the sheriff, nurse and two of the passengers from the previous accident.
Trevor Stuck, 23, was pronounced dead at the scene after the second vehicle drove through. The other passengers along with the sheriff and nurse have all been hospitalized with two of the other passengers in critical condition.
The driver of the second vehicle has been taken into custody and did not sustain any injuries.
