Yesterday, we reported on a fatal accident that occurred on Highway 121 in Nassau County, Florida. In that blog entry, we wrote about how common serious car and truck accidents are on the portion of Highway 121 located in Nassau County.
Unbelievably, another fatal trucking accident happened on Highway 121 this morning. Like Sunday’s accident, this morning’s involved a pick-up truck colliding with a tractor-trailer. Tragically, a young man was killed when his pick-up truck drifted across the center line and struck a semi truck. The driver of the pick-up was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from his vehicle. The driver of the tractor-trailer, from St. Augustine, suffered minor personal injuries.
We can only hope that state and local authorities recognize the danger of this highway and take some measures to improve its safety.
