Case History
On January 14, 1994, a pickup truck carrying nine Okeechobee farm workers flipped on Orange Avenue, killing this victim.

The pickup was headed east on Orange Avenue at 07:30 a.m. when it veered off the road about 1 mile east of the Okeechobee County line.
The pickup went back onto the roadway, crossed the center line, and went back off the road, hitting a guard rail along a canal. As the truck rolled over, an aluminum bed cover flew off and seven workers were thrown from the back of the truck and on the shoulder along a canal.

At the time of the crash, the group was headed to a nearby orange grove owned by Pride Orange Groves of Port St. Lucie.

The victim probably was employed as a fruit picker in the citrus grove.
