One person is dead and two are seriously injured after a semi-trailer crashed into a highway diner in Nevada yesterday afternoon. 54-year-old Joseph E. Cole of Nevada was pronounced dead at the scene, says the Missouri Highway Patrol. The patrol says the driver of a car pulled away from a stop sign and into the path of the truck, which was going southbound on U.S. 71. The driver of the truck tried to avoid the car but struck it and then ran into the Quick Dine Restaurant.
