HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – The driver of a pickup truck walked away from the scene of a crash Wednesday morning in Hollywood that left the pickup and a big rig covered in human waste.
The driver of the big rig told Local 10 News reporter Trent Kelly that he was hauling fertilizer while traveling west along Sheridan Street when he saw a red pickup truck speeding in the other direction. He said that driver lost control, crossed over the median and crashed in front of a home.
“I guess it came over the railroad tracks, like, extremely fast and it was losing control, losing control. It was flying,” Manuel Fernandez said.
Fernandez said his big rig was not actually struck, but he had to come to a quick stop to avoid being hit, which caused the human waste to spill out, covering his truck and the pickup truck.
The big rig driver said the driver of the pickup walked away with that looked like a gun case. Police are searching for the driver.
