Earlier this month on Dec. 3, two people were killed and two more injured in south Florida when a truck collided with a passenger car, causing it to burst into flames. This trucking accident exemplifies the potential dangers of passenger cars sharing the road with huge trucks weighing up to 80,000 pounds. The truck driver was cited for making an improper lane change and operating a vehicle in an unsafe condition after the accident.
A man riding his bicycle in Ponte Vedra Beach is listed in very critical condition after he was struck by a truck recently near the intersection of State Road A1A and Dolphin Boulevard. Florida Highway Patrol troopers say that the 56-year-old victim was southbound in the bike lane of S.R. A1A when the accident occurred. They say that a Ford truck driven by a 43-year-old man, also from Ponte Vedra Beach, was heading east on Dolphin Boulevard and attempting to turn north onto S.R. A1A when he drove into the path of the bicyclist.
