On October 10, 1993, four teenagers were on their way to a haunted hayride in Lisbon, Maine, when their car overheated. After pulling onto the shoulder lane of the highway to cool the car down, they were struck by a Wal-Mart truck driver who had fallen asleep at the wheel. Later, the Wal-Mart driver admitted to being sleep-deprived and to having falsified his logbook in order to keep driving. The crash killed Jeff Izer and three of the four other teenagers with him that day. Another teen was seriously injured.
