S. R. 528 Truck Accident
Two people were killed recently when the cab they were riding in was struck by a dump truck at a high rate of speed. The investigation into the crash is ongoing, but a spokesperson for the Florida Highway Patrol said the accident occurred on Monday, June 6 around 2:00 a.m. Officers say the cab was stopped on State Road 528 near the McCoy Road exit near Orlando International Airport when it was struck from the rear by the dump truck. Police say the impact nearly tore the back end of the cab completely off, killing the 55-year-old passenger riding in the back of the cab and mortally injuring the taxi driver. The 39-year-old driver was rushed to Orlando Regional Medical Center in critical condition, and he died from his injuries two days later.
