Dump Truck and Car Collide Head-On in Wellington

texting and driving accident

Cesar Echavarria died at the scene of head-on accident involving a dump truck and small SUV in Wellington on Wednesday afternoon.

Echavarria was driving south on South Shore Boulevard just after 4 p.m. when his car swerved in front of a dump truck that was traveling north. The vehicles collided and Echavarrias vehicle was pushed into a nearby canal.

Although much of the area is divided by a median, the 4700 block of the boulevard is not. The driver of the dump truck alleges that he saw Echevarria looking down at what may have been a cellphone.

HazMat crews were called to the scene of the accident for a fuel leak. Approximately 20-50 gallons of gas leaked into the surrounding soil.

The Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office is still investigating the crash to determine what caused the collision.
