Palm Coast, FL (November 22, 2018) - A waste disposal worker died in a crash that took place in Palm Coast on Wednesday, November 21st.
The 21-year-old man, who has not been identified, was a passenger in a Waste Pro disposal truck. As the truck traveled along Bay Spring Place near Oak Trails Boulevard, it failed to properly navigate a curve. The truck overturned and the man was ejected from the vehicle. After being ejected, he was pinned underneath the truck until rescue workers could arrive. The man was later pronounced dead at the scene of the incident. The truck driver sustained minor injuries.
There is no word on whether any charges are expected from the accident. An investigation remains ongoing.
Our thoughts go out to the worker killed in this tragic accident. Rollover crashes are a common cause of traffic fatalities. A rollover can occur when a vehicle is traveling too fast for conditions, strikes an object in the roadway, or is forced to make a sudden maneuver to avoid a collision. At this time, we do not have enough details to say exactly why this rollover crash occurred. We do know, however, that an innocent person lost their life in the crash.
