7 Thrown From Pickup Truck In I-95 Accident

According to the Florida Today Newspaper, 6 children and 1 man were riding in a pickup truck bed Monday evening when a tire blew out causing the pickup truck to lose control and flip over jettisoning the 7 passengers onto Interstate 95. The southbound lanes of I-95 were closed as emergency personnel cleaned up the area and tended to the injured. Evidently, the pickup truck had some type of camper top on it.

No one was thought to be seriously injured. When the pickup truck flipped, many items were strewn onto the roadway including, a mattress, shoes, backpacks, food wrappers and other debris. Additionally, 2 dogs had to be rounded up that also were thrown from the pickup truck. Charges are pending.
