According to a news report from Miami-Dade County, a woman was struck by a car after trying to remove a garbage bin that fell on Florida’s Turnpike.

The woman, whose identity has not been made public, was trying to retrieve a garbage bin after it fell out of the back of a landscaping truck. She was struck and killed by a car on Florida’s Turnpike in Miami-Dade County, authorities said.

Lt. Alex Camacho, a Florida Highway Patrol said, a landscaping truck lost part of its load and dropped a garbage bin onto the roadway near Northwest 199th Street prior to the accident. He added that the female driver walked into the roadway to recover the garbage bin when a black Toyota Corolla crashed into her.

According to Camacho, the Corolla driver tried to swerve to avoid hitting the woman, but wasn’t able to avoid striking her.

Report says the car involved in the crash had significant front-end damage, and a tarp covered the victim’s body.

No other details were immediately released as further investigation is ongoing.
