Two dead in tractor-trailer accident

Archives, Trucking Accidents, Wrongful Death

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.
