Man Hit By Utility TrailerSunday, February 10, 2008 11:32:06 PM
A Kissimmee man is facing charges after troopers said his mistake led to a pedestrian being sent to the hospital in serious condition.
Investigators said Benito Lopez was driving his truck on U.S. 192 Sunday when the trailer he was pulling detached, jumped up onto a sidewalk, and hit a man who had just gotten off the bus.
Pedro Danchez, 47, was airlifted to Orlando Regional Medical Center.
Troopers said Lopez didn't properly secure the trailer to the truck before he started driving, and was issued a ticket.
