West Palm Beach Tragedy: Pickup Truck Strikes and Kills Miami Pedestrian

A pickup truck fatally struck and killed a 37-year-old man from Miami as he was crossing Okeechobee Boulevard at a non-marked crosswalk.

The tragic incident occurred on Saturday night near West Palm Beach, and it was reported by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday.

Emergency personnel were dispatched to the crash site at 5730 Okeechobee Boulevard, which is located to the east of Florida’s Turnpike and close to Century Village.

According to the crash report provided by PBSO, Cory Siaba, a resident of Miami, was attempting to cross Okeechobee Boulevard in an unspecified direction in the middle of the block.

At the time of the accident, a 2023 Toyota Tacoma being driven by a 57-year-old man from West Palm Beach was headed west on Okeechobee Boulevard, occupying the outer lane in the center of traffic.

The pedestrian, Siaba, entered the outer center lane of traffic, disregarding the right of way of the approaching truck.

The collision occurred when the car struck the pedestrian, propelling him onto the road. He came to rest in the outer lane of the westbound side of Okeechobee Boulevard, just west of the point of impact.

Tragically, Siaba was pronounced dead at the scene of the incident. This unfortunate event echoes a similar incident in December, where a pedestrian lost their life in a hit-and-run accident near the 4000 block of Okeechobee Boulevard near Indian Road.
