I was driving around Sarasota yesterday doing some last day of vacation errands and heard this story on the local news. What an incredible waste.
College Student Killed by Truck
Warner Southern College student Heath Horne, 21, was identified Wednesday as the man who died Tuesday night after stepping in front of an oncoming tractor-trailer on U.S. 27, the Polk County Sheriff's Office said.
Witnesses told deputies that Horne, of Lake Wales, had an argument with his roommate Tuesday. He told his roommate he was going to jump in front of a truck, sheriff's spokeswoman Carrie Rodgers said.
Horne then drove his vehicle to U.S. 27, got out and stepped in front of 1996 Freightliner at 9:45 p.m., Rodgers said.
