Woman dies after her car was involved in an accident with a truck carrying loads of logs

Woman dies after her car was involved in an accident with a truck carrying loads of logs

The woman was driving behind a semi-trailer when she crashed into the truck as they approached a traffic light.

A 25-year-old woman has died following a crash involving a logging truck.

According to CBS affiliate WJAX-TV, the woman was driving behind a semi-trailer that was carrying logs on State Road 200 in Florida on Tuesday (July 19) morning when she crashed into the truck as they approached a traffic light.

The crash caused the logs to go through the driver’s side of the SUV and injure the woman.

She was transported to UF Health Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

According to the crash report, the woman 'failed to maintain a safe distance' behind the truck as they approached the traffic lights.

Her identity has not been released.

This is the second traffic accident involving logging trucks this week in the US.

According to police in Albany, Georgia, two logging trucks were travelling east on E. Oglethorpe Boulevard around 9:30 am local time on Thursday (July 20) when one truck rear-ended the other as it approached a traffic light.

The 58-year-old driver of the second truck was trapped in his cab by the logs of the first truck.

He was eventually freed from the vehicle and transported to Phoebe Putney Memorial hospital with 'serious injuries'.

The accidents are eerily similar to a scene in the 2003 film Final Destination 2.

In the movie, a character named Kimberly (played by A.J. Cook) has a vision of logs falling off a logging truck and causing a pileup on a freeway that leads to the death of 18 people.

However, her vision ends up being a premonition and the accident actually occurs.

The logs get dislodged from the truck and then smash into vehicles behind and causes aforementioned pileup.
