65 year old Jose Garcia de Araujo was squished like a ripe tomato by a semi truck while walking in flip flops down highway BR-116 just outside of Timbaúba dos Marinheiros in Chorozinho, Região Metropolitana de Fortaleza, Brazil.
According to the eye witnesses, the truck was traveling at a low speed but the victim did not notice it and fell under its wheels. Unlike this truck driver (same highway), 36 year old Joseph Wagner stayed with his truck at the scene and cooperated with the police during an investigation.
The old man’s children said Jose Garcia was drinking that night and may not have noticed the approaching truck due to the effects of the alcohol.
Brazilian highway patrol reported that in the 24 hours proceeding the accident, other 11 accidents which left 2 people dead and 6 wounded took place on the highway.
