A man from East Palatka was killed on Wednesday in a collision with a box truck in Putnam Province.
Two car wrecks occurred shortly before 9 am Wednesday along State Route 100 east of East End Road, according to a Florida Highway Patrol crash report.
Soldiers said the 52-year-old was behind the wheel of a 100-riyal eastbound sedan when it crossed the center line in the West Lane and collided with a box truck.
The soldiers said the box truck veered off the road before the driver corrected the car and stopped at the shoulder where it caught fire.
The driver of the car was announced dead at the scene. The other driver was slightly injured.
