According to the news release by officials, the accident happened when a 40-year-old driver in a Nissan Titan was driving on Florida A1A behind a tractor-trailer when the unexpected happened.
Law enforcement authorities reported the traffic accident on Florida A1A that left a driver injured, after parts from a semi-truck struck the driver’s windshield.
Reports say the brake drum and tire thread separated from one of the tractor-trailer’s wheels. The brake drum then bounced off the road and struck the windshield of the Titan traveling behind the trailer. The driver in the Titan came to a stop after the collision with the trailer’s brake drum.
EMS arrived to the scene of the crash and administered on-site first aid to the driver of the Titan. EMS reported that the driver was critically injured before taking him to a nearby hospital by ambulance.
