In a Florida Highway Patrol Press release, the FHP reports that two Florida Power and Light (FPL) employees were killed in a single vehicle accident yesterday morning. The crash occurred west of US-27 near South Bay in Palm Beach County on an unnamed dirt road. According to investigators, the work truck driven by Christopher Garcia was traveling northbound on that dirt road when it gave out, leading the vehicle to rollover into a canal.
Garcia, 45, of Parkland and his passenger, Pflaum, 36, of Sunrise were both pronounced dead at the scene. An accident investigation is still ongoing. We will have more information as it becomes available. Media outlets such as the PalmBeachPost.com may have additional details.
