A man from Okeechobee dies after a traffic crash on State Road 78 which is just west of U.S. 441 at approximately 3:45 P.M. Wednesday.
Reports released show that Biesemeyer was in his 2003 GMC S15 pickup truck heading west on State Road 78 and 57-year-old Rolando Reyes was behind him driving a 2008 International semi.
Biesemeyer was reportedly driving on the north grass shoulder of the road and tried to make a U-turn to get back onto State Road 78.
Reyes than swerved left and drove in a southwest direction so that he can avoid crashing into Biesemeyer.
The semi hit the driver side door of Biesemeyer’s vehicle and Biesemeyer finally stopped in the middle of State Road 78 which was facing southeast. The semi, on the other hand, stopped on the southern grass most shoulder and eastbound side of State Road 78.
Reyes suffered minor injuries, however, Biesemeyer was pronounced deceased at the scene of the accident.
The crash is still under investigation.
