MARGATE, Fla. (AP) - At woman died Monday morning at a bus stop
bench when a flatbed truck slammed into the Margate stop.
The crash happened at U-S Highway 441 and Atlantic Boulevard.
The driver of the tractor-trailer was also taken to a local
hospital, and investigators were reviewing the possibility he had a
medical emergency just before the crash.
Some local businesses also lost electricity after the crash because the truck hit a utility pole. Authorities say power will have to be shut off to others in the area before rescue workers can reach the body of the woman.
