A Florida man was killed when his truck rolled off a bridge after being struck by another vehicle on July 16. Florida Highway Patrol troopers said that charges were pending against the driver of one of the vehicles involved in the car accident. Reports indicated that the man facing charges previously received four speeding citations in three different Florida counties.
The accident occurred on the Buckman Bridge in Jacksonville at about 7:30 a.m. A 22-year-old man was traveling on the bridge and lost control of his Toyota Scion while trying to slow down for traffic ahead of him. His car struck a black 1988 Ford Ranger driven by a 48-year-old Tampa man, and the truck went over the concrete barrier on the edge of the bridge and into the St. Johns River below.
