A vehicle crashes into a tractor-trailer near Tallahassee

Archives, Trucking Accidents

Florida Highway Patrol reported that a 23-year old female, lost control of her vehicle and killed her 3-year old passenger.  It is believed another passenger was in the vehicle.  The officers said the woman was approaching a vehicle and failed to see it until she was close to it. 

She applied her brakes and swerved to the left.  In doing so, she was t-boned by a tractor-trailer.  The woman and the 3-year old were taken to Tallahassee Hospital where the little girl died.  The woman, who is from Illinois, is in serious condition.  The tractor-trailer driver had no injuries.

The accident is under investigation.  My sympathies go out to the family of this little girl who lost her life far from home.
