One Adult and One Infant are Dead After a Dump Truck Driver Collides with Multiple Vehicles

On Monday, August 6, a multi-vehicle crash caused by a dump truck led to the tragic death of a 2-month-old baby, and a 46-year-old man.

Florida Highway Patrol reports that a dump truck driven by 74-year-old Daniel Ragan of Spring Hill collided with two other vehicles around 2:30 in the afternoon. The dump truck then overturned onto a van driven by 46-year-old David Garcia, of Inverness. Sadly, Garcia died at the scene.

Two-month-old Asher Gaspard was a passenger in another of the eight vehicles struck by the dump truck. Gaspard was rushed to a local hospital, but ultimately died of injuries suffered in the crash.

Charges are pending in the crash, although officials say alcohol was not a factor.
