Big-rig kills a man in a wheelchair

A man in a wheelchair crossing a street in Hialeah in mid-morning recently was hit by a tractor-trailer.  The man was dragged about 500 feet when he became pinned to the front of the truck.  Before an emergency team could get the man to a hospital, he died. 

 

The police are investigating this fatal accident; they have not filed charges against the truck driver.  I would advise the trucker to seek the help of an experienced Truck Accident Attorney.  This was a tragic accident and my condolences go out to the family of the man who died.  His name was not released pending notification of his family.
