Fatal tractor-trailer accident in Bryceville

Archives, Trucking Accidents

U.S. Highway 301 was the scene of a fatal accident that killed a Jacksonville man early morning.  The 33-year old driver of a passenger vehicle, for unknown reasons, veered into an approaching tractor-trailer truck.

The passenger vehicle caught fire, killing the driver.  The truck driver was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries.  An investigation is under way to determine what caused this fatal accident.  It was determined that both drivers were wearing their seat belts.

I hope the trucker consults with an experienced Florida Trucking Attorney to determine if he can be compensated for damage and injuries sustained.  I also offer deep condolences to the family of the driver who was tragically killed.
