A fatal trucking accident ended in death for a young man trying to get home for Christmas. A 28 year-old motivational speaker from New Jersey was killed on his way home for Christmas when a tractor-trailer crashed into his car on I-95. The accident occurred around 12:30 a.m. Thursday on December 22. Hezekiah Griggs III was parked with his emergency flashers on in the safety zone on I-95 at Old St Augustine Road when a tractor-trailer hit the back of Hezekiah Griggs vehicle. According to the Florida Highway Patrol the tractor- trailer driver from Jacksonville was attempting to merge onto the Interstate when his truck struck the parked Mercedes driven by Hezekiah Griggs.
