MOORE HAVEN, FL. -- A 2006 Chevy Malibu was southbound on Glades County Road 731 at about 8 p.m. Wednesday involved in a crash that left the driver dead.
A commercial truck and trailer driven by Luis Eduardo Cuervo, 47 of North Port, Fl. was westbound on CR 74. The unidentified driver of the Malibu failed to yield to oncoming westbound traffic on CR 74. The Malibu driver then proceeded to travel southbound into the intersection. As a result, the left front of the vehicle struck the right side of the front trailer axle.
Post collision, the Malibu came to rest partially on the south grassy shoulder and partially in the eastbound lane of CR 74. The truck and towed trailer came to a controlled stop in both the eastbound and westbound lanes of CR 74. The identity of the driver is pending notification of next of kin.
Cuervo suffered no injuries in the collision.
