An 18-year-old Orlando man who was helping pull another truck back onto an Orange County road after it got stuck on a shoulder was killed Sunday after his vehicle was hit by another car, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers said the crash happened shortly after 1 a.m. on Dallas Boulevard, near Oberly Parkway in Orlando.

According to FHP, the driver of a white Honda Insight headed north on Dallas Boulevard in the northbound lane, “failed to observe” a white Ford F-150 stopped in the road, attempting to pull a gray Ford F-150 back onto the road, and struck the left side of the white Ford F-150. As a result of the collision, the pickup truck overturned and its 18-year-old driver was thrown from the vehicle, killing him.
