On March 29th, three women were traveling down Southern Boulevard when their Toyota Camry struck a tractor-trailer. The tractor-trailer was loaded with thousands of pounds of lettuce when it came into contact with the car. Two of the women, both eighteen years old, died and the other passenger was sent to the hospital where she is recovering from serious injuries.
The crash occurred when the car struck the rear of the trailer, which caused it to roll. The car was crushed with the passengers inside. The truck driver continued on and was pulled over hours later, unaware of the accident that had occurred. According to Florida Highway Patrol, the damage to the truck matches up with the damage the car sustained.
