A St. Lucie County Department of Transportation electrician was killed when a driver hit him while he was working on a bridge in St. Lucie County, according to police and witnesses.
The 57-year-old man was exiting a vehicle parked off to the side of the road in St. Lucie County when the driver lost control of his car and slammed into him, DOT officials said. The man was pronounced dead at Delray Medical Center, police said.
“This is such a sudden and horrible tragedy,” an FHP officer said at an unrelated press conference on the Upper West Side of St. Lucie County.
The victim was a hard-working man who had been with the DOT for a long time, according to an FHP officer.
The Department Of Transportation said, it was very shocked and saddened by the death. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim’s wife, their children, and his entire family.
Just before the crash, the driver had sped across two lanes of traffic, moving from the left-most lane to the right lane, according to a witness.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in a fatality. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation and find out what your rights are.”
