Semi-Truck Driver Killed Following Collision with Excavator
A truck driver is dead and another is injured following a multiple-vehicle crash that occurred along Interstate 95. According to Space Coast Daily, the driver thought to be at fault in the incident was transported to a nearby hospital following the accident, while the driver of the other truck involved was pronounced dead at the scene.
Details released by the Florida Highway Patrol reveal that one truck driver, who was traveling northbound, was killed after being struck by an excavator that became detached from a semi that had been traveling in the highway’s southbound lanes. The detachment occurred after the truck driver struck a guardrail, which caused the excavator to fly off and land in the opposite lanes. It is believed that two other motorists were struck by flying debris as a result of the crash, though neither party suffered serious injury. A tire tread separation is thought to be the primary cause of the crash.
