A rear-end truck accident has claimed the life of a Lake County man. The accident occurred at 5:30 a.m. on the morning of March 3 on U.S. Highway 27 and resulted in the closure of the highway for several hours. Florida Highway Patrol investigators say the victim was a 46-year-old Clermont man who was driving his car to work. A semi truck that left a private driveway off Frank Jarrell Road and attempted to turn onto U.S. 27 pulled in front of the victim’s car, causing the victim to strike the rear of the truck. Police say the truck was attempting to travel south on U.S. 27 when the driver crossed the northbound lanes and pulled directly into the path of the victim.
Police say the victim had little time to react, and he drove right into the back of the truck where his car lodged beneath the rear of the truck. The 59-year-old truck driver was not injured in the crash, but the accident investigation is ongoing. Police expect to file charges against the truck driver.
