Description of Incident:

At approximately 5:40 a.m. on August 10, Onel Gonzalez-Alvarez was driving a Freightliner semitrailer northbound in the 4400 block of North Dixie Highway. He attempted to make a left turn into a Marathon Gas Station but was unable to because another semitrailer was already parked at the fuel pumps. Gonzalez-Alvarez proceeded to back up moving south in the northbound lanes of Dixie Highway to avoid blocking the southbound lanes.
Robert C. Montgomery was traveling northbound on Dixie Highway in a 2008 Toyota Tundra in the inside lane approaching the Freightliner from behind. Montgomery tried to avoid hitting the semitrailer by steering his truck into the outside lane. Despite his efforts, the Tundra struck the rear of the semitrailer approximately 230 feet from the gas station entrance.
Montgomery was transported to Broward Health North where he was pronounced dead at 6:15 a.m. Gonzalez-Alvarez was not injured and remained on scene.
