PALM COAST, Fla. (AP) — The Florida Highway Patrol says a teenager drifted into another lane on Interstate 95 and hit a tractor trailer after being distracted by her phone.
The agency says the 56-year-old truck driver died in the crash early Wednesday morning.
The 18-year-old told investigators she hit the truck's rear wheels after overcorrecting her vehicle. The truck veered off the road, hitting a guard rail before overturning.
The teen suffered minor injuries. Troopers say both drivers were wearing seat belts.
The crash happened near Palm Coast in central Florida.
