Man, 56, Dies In Tractor-Trailer Crash Near Belle Glade

BELLE GLADE — A 56-year-old man died when his car and a tractor-trailer crashed east of Belle Glade, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.

Authorities pronounced a Belle Glade-area resident dead at the scene at the intersection of State Road 80 and Hatton Highway.

A Freightliner truck was northbound on Hatton and started to cross State Road 80 on a flashing red light, PBSO said.

It drove into the path of the victim’s 2017 Chevrolet Impala, PBSO said. The vehicles collided and the Impala became stuck beneath the trailer.

A third vehicle, a Toyota Tacoma SUV, hit the rear of the man’s car.

The driver of the Freightliner, a 39-year-old man of Miami, was not injured, PBSO said. The driver of the Tacoma also was uninjured.

The PBSO crash report does not mention any pending charges in the crash.
