Jacksonville man killed in big-rig accident

Archives, Trucking Accidents, Wrongful Death

The driver of a big-rig, was killed the other morning when his truck crashed into trees along Interstate 95 near St. Augustine, causing his semi-truck to burst into flames.

Apparently, according to Florida Highway Patrol, the truck driver hit a wet ditch and then collided with trees causing the tractor-trailer to jackknife.  The trailer stopped on the right shoulder and caught on fire, killing the truck driver.

The accident is under investigation.  My condolences go out to the family of the truck driver on their tragic loss.
