A young man from Palm City lost his life in an truck accident last Friday. The 20 year-old man had stopped at a stop sign in his 2000 Ford Mustang. For some unknown reason, the driver pulled into the intersection right in front of a semi tractor trailer. The driver of the semi, a 54 year-old man from Lake Wales, hit his brakes and tried to steer clear of the Mustang by swerving to the left. The tractor veered sideways and struck the left side of the Mustang.
The young driver, who was a student at Indian River Community College, was taken to Raulerson Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
