On Monday, September 5, Reynaldo Luna, of Miami, was traveling on Interstate 10. Due to the heavy rains that the weekend brought, along with the rain on Monday, I-10 was, as well as many other roads, wet.
Florida Highway Patrol reported that Luna was traveling east on Interstate 10 in the inside lane. Luna, who was driving a 2009 GMC Pickup, hydroplaned and began to spin. The left side of his truck struck a guardrail that was located near the median. The vehicle then traveled across the inside and outside travel lanes, the emergency lanes and then entered the grassy shoulder. The front of his truck then struck shrubbery on the south shoulder and continued traveling south. The vehicle finally came to rest after the front of the pickup collided with a fence.
Madison Sheriff’s Department assisted the FHP on scene.
