Orlando semi-truck accident lawyers | Orlando Accident & Injury Blog
Early on Monday morning, a trucking accident happened in the southern lanes of the Florida Turnpike within the city of Orlando that resulted in massive delays as well as a hefty cleanup organized and conducted by the Florida Highway Patrol in concert with numerous other emergency cleanup organizations.
After the devastating fatal bicycle accident that happened on Wednesday, April 24th, and left a ten-year-old dead after being struck by a semi at the intersection of Landstar Boulevard and Wetherbee Road, the Florida Highway Patrol investigated the area to determine whether or not it was the intersection itself that was the problem. Their preliminary investigation – only the result of several days of work, at the time of this writing – suggests that, far from being an isolated incident, this incident was only one of close to 25 separate crashes that have occurred at the same intersection between 2017 and now.
Police with the Florida Highway Patrol are in the process of investigating an incident which took place on Wednesday, September 12th, and that resulted in the death of a 40-year-old individual from Daytona Beach. The early reports from the FHP indicated that the crash happened shortly before noon and that it involved a car and a tractor-trailer, both of which were traveling along Sand Lake Road in the Orange County city of Orlando.
