According to a Florida Highway Patrol Press release issued today, Clifford L. Stryker, 60, of West Palm Beach, was killed yesterday evening on the Florida Turnpike in St. Lucie County. His Dodge Ram pickup was struck by a tow truck driven by Anthony Gomes, 44, of Ft. Pierce.
Although the accident remains under investigation, the FHP states that Gomes’ tow truck struck Stryker’s vehicle from the rear, as Stryker was waiting to go from the northbound lane to the southbound lane of SR-91 near Mile Marker 162. Stryker’s truck was partially outside of the center u-turn slot.
Stryker was transported to the Lawnwood Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead shortly after the accident occurred.
