Florida - Truck Accident in Cocoa leaves one dead

Brevard County, Florida — According to the driver involved in an early morning, fatal truck accident yesterday in Cocoa, Florida, a white truck sideswiped his car.

Lt. Channing Taylor of the Florida Highway Patrol said that 42 year old Elbert McClary was southbound on Clearlake Road when his SUV ran into a canal and over-turned at Jackson Road in Cocoa yesterday.

His passenger, 30 year old Corah Wells, also of Cocoa was killed in the accident.

Authorities are still investigating the timeline of the automobile accident which is still a mystery.

Police were not called until “well after 6 a.m.,” Taylor said. But McClary told Highway Patrol troopers investigating the truck accident that the crash happened several hours before that time.

The investigation as to what time the fatal truck wreck actually occurred is ongoing and charges may yet be filed said FHP Sgt. Kim Miller.
