A delivery driver was injured at the White City in St. Lucie County when another trucker accidentally backed over him, cops said.
A 32-year old White City resident had just hopped out of the cab of his 18-wheeler after pulling up to the market’s main terminal in St. Lucie County when a fellow truck driver ran him over while reversing up to a loading dock, according to police.
The man was rushed to Delray Medical Center. The other truck driver remained on the scene and has not been charged with a crime.
The trucker was the third person to be injured by a vehicle, police said.
In Martin County, A 32-year-old man was struck and left critical when he tried to run across the Long Island Expressway near 169th Street.
An SUV slammed into the intoxicated man near Exit 24, sending his body flying down the roadway. The victim was later rushed to a hospital in Martin County.
Later on, another 27-year old motorcyclist was speeding down 140th Avenue in Broward County when a 48-year woman in a Toyota Highlander struck him as she was turning onto the same road from Coconut Creek Street, cops said.
The woman remained at the scene and has not been charged with a crime.
Meanwhile, two other people were clinging to life after separate traffic crashes in Broward County, cops said.
A 21-year-old is in critical condition at Palm Beach Hospital after his vehicle flipped and slammed into a row of parked cars while speeding down Wellington near Beach 6th Street, cops said.
Attorney Jason Weisser of Shuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded about the crash. “Cases involving accidents with trucks are always subject to heightened scrutiny because of the additional regulations placed on drivers of those vehicles. Unfortunately, in our practice, we have seen numerous instances where drivers blatantly violate these regulations, which results in catastrophic consequences.”
