Indiantown, FL (April 30, 2019) - A 29-year-old man from Stuart was killed in a crash on Tuesday, April 30th. The accident took place on Southwest Warfield Boulevard around 10:30 p.m.
The man, whose name has not been released, was driving northbound on Southwest Warfield in a 2002 Dodge Dakota truck. Suddenly, he began to slow down. Behind the man was 55-year-old Michael Lecrenier in a 2014 semi-truck, who failed to see the Dakota and collided with the truck from behind. A third truck, a 2005 tractor-trailer, which was traveling southbound on Southwest Warfield, then hit the Dakota as it spun out from the impact of the truck.
Troopers are currently in the process of notifying the victim's next-of-kin. There is no word on potential charges at this time and the crash remains under investigation.
