Two dead in tractor-trailer accident
The Florida Turnpike in Yeehaw Junction was the scene of a fatal accident the other night. According to a highway patrol officer, the trailer portion of a tractor-trailer came loose, crushing a pickup. The driver and a 2-year old passenger – both were killed.
It was reported that the driver of the tractor-trailer entered the turnpike at a high speed. The trailer was carrying a load of pineapples. The driver of the pickup was coming off the turnpike at the time. The truck driver suffered minor injuries.
I would like to extend my condolences to the family of the two that died. I hope the truck driver contacts an experienced Truck Accident attorney to see what his options are.
