FedEx driver killed in Tampa accident

Archives, Trucking Accidents

About 3:00 a.m. one morning not too long ago, a 45-year old FedEx driver in a tractor-trailer truck, came across a GMC truck driver who lost a tire in his path.

 

The man hit the tire and lost control of his tractor-trailer truck, causing him to slam into the US 301/92 underpass.  After sliding along the barrier wall, he banged against several of the supporting concrete pillars.  The truck finally stopped about a hundred feet on the other side.  The man died at the scene.  The other driver was not injured according to Florida Highway Patrol.

 

Florida Transportation officials are investigating the scene – and checking the underpass, wall and pillars.
