18-wheeler accident causes fatality

An accident between an 18-wheeler and an SUV on the northbound side of Interstate 95 in Volusia County left one person dead and another hospitalized.

 

The driver of the 18-wheeler, slammed into the back of the SUV in the early hours of the morning causing the SUV to flip over.  The truck driver was able to walk away without any injuries.  The 60-year old man driving the SUV sustained major injuries and was pronounced dead.  An unidentified woman was in the SUV; she was taken to a local hospital in critical condition.

 

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the cause of this accident; no arrest has been made.   It is unknown what caused the truck driver to slam into the back of the SUV.  I would suggest he contact a qualified Truck Accident Attorney to advise him what his next steps might be.
