A big-rig driver not paying attention failed to slow down near a roadside work crew. He backed into a tractor and killed a 47-year old man on Interstate 95, according to Florida Highway Patrol. The driver claimed someone tried to cut him off, but he could not substantiate his claim. The man’s son was working near his father and saw the accident when it happened, sadly not being able to help his dad.

The truck driver is being charged with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle.
