The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office reports that about 5:15 PM, 25-year-old Dustin Taylor of Spencer was driving a 1998 Volvo Semi eastbound on Highway 9, just west of Skyline Avenue near Willow Creek. The report says he crested a hill and observed another semi westbound in the eastbound lane. Taylor slammed on his brakes and swerved into the right ditch to avoid colliding with the other semi.
He ended up colliding with a tree. The second semi never stopped.
Taylor was transported by the Osceola County Ambulance Service to the Osceola Community Hospital.
The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office is investigating, trying to find the second semi that left the scene.
