FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Traffic homicide investigators are trying to find the next of kin of a man killed in a box truck crash in Fort Lauderdale in the beginning of February.
Investigators have released the deceased passenger’s name -- Algie Omar Clark -- in hopes of identifying and locating his family.
Clark, 37, was known to reside in Miami. He died Feb. 6 when a bakery truck he was in crashed and dangled over the edge of an elevated overpass ramp on Interstate 95.
Rescue crews used an elevated ladder to reach the truck. The truck crashed on the State Road 84 ramp leading from a state road to I-95.
The truck, bearing a sign for a Miami bakery, came to rest halfway off the ramp with its front end crumpled into a pillar. Rescue crews worked for hours to remove the passenger. A crane later pulled the truck off the side of ramp.
The driver, whose condition wasn't immediately known, was taken to a hospital.
The crash backed up traffic on both routes during the morning rush hour.
Anyone who has contact information or knows the whereabouts of Mr. Clark’s family is being asked to contact Traffic Homicide Investigator Goedke at 954-828-5754.
