Woman dies in Suwannee County, Florida accident

Archives, Trucking Accidents

Florida Highway Patrol reported that a 66-year old woman motorist, traveling on the Westside of County Road 136 collided with a tractor-trailer heading East. The driver of the semi, a 49-year old man, tried to back up in a northwest direction across the westbound lanes into a private drive. The big rig was across two lanes when the woman motorist crashed into the left side of it.

Emergency medical services responded to the accident where the woman suffered fatal traumatic injuries. The truck driver did not sustain any injuries. The accident is under investigation by The Florida Highway Patrol. Charges are pending the outcome.

My sympathies go out to the family of the woman. For more information on tractor-trailer accidents in Florida, visit the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles website at http://www.flhsmv.gov
