FHP: Jupiter man, 24, dies after being hit by car on I-95 in West Palm


A 24-year-old man from Jupiter died on Saturday morning after being struck by a car on Interstate 95 in West Palm Beach, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

At about 8 a.m., Matthew McMullin was driving southbound on I-95 when he lost the load he was transporting and items spilled into the road. He then pulled over on the left shoulder, just south of the Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard exit, and got out of his car to try to retrieve the items.

Another man also driving southbound in a Ram pickup truck then struck McMullin, killing him, Lt. Alvaro A. Feola said. The driver who hit McMullin was not injured.
