Reports say that he saw Mr. Maguire and waved his arms to try and get him to stop, but he was not successful. Mr. Maguire crashed into the semi-truck traveling at speeds of around sixty miles per hour. The car hit the left side of the truck, went under the trailer, and left the road crashing into a natural gas pipeline. No one was injured due to the leak.
