Archives, Trucking Accidents

Did you hear about the recent big-rig truck, that rolled over on the train tracks at Port Everglades?  A truck driver, age 33, was driving the truck that was full of yarn.  He apparently lost control and the truck overturned on the Florida East Coast railroad tracks.

A Hazmat crew was called when officers discovered a fuel leak from one of the tanks on the truck.  The truck driver was not seriously injured.  He was ticketed for careless driving.  All trains were halted for several hours according to the FEC.

The incident is being investigated.
