Man killed when truck bed lands on him

Florida Highway Patrol reports show that the driver of the truck
lost control Monday night on a dirt road.

The truck spun around, slid off the road and drove into the yard of a house in Orange County.

FHP says 21-year-old Archibald Tanner Scofield, who was riding
in the bed of the truck, was tossed from the vehicle.

He landed on the lawn.

Investigators say the truck's tires dug into the soft ground,
making it overturn on its roof and land on Scofield.

He died at the scene.

The driver, 20-year-old Grant Whippe, and another passenger
suffered minor injuries.

No one was wearing a seat belt.
