A tractor-trailer fatally struck a pedestrian on the Florida turnpike in Palm Beach County.  Authorities stated that the tractor-trailer driver lost control of the vehicle just north of Southern Boulevard.

The pedestrian, a local resident from Davie, Florida, had just pulled over and exited his vehicle on the shoulder when the tractor-trailer veered off the highway and struck him.  The Florida tractor-trailer also struck the Davie man’s pickup truck, where another passenger was still seated, however she was not injured after being involved in the accident.

Accidents involving tractor-trailers occur often in the South Florida region, and are common on roadways from Fort Lauderdale to Davie, Weston, and other local areas. These collisions carry with them inherent complexity so if you find yourself involved in a collision with a tractor-trailer, be sure to consult an experienced and skillful Fort Lauderdale trucking accident personal injury attorney to ensure that your interests are competently represented.
