Madeira Beach man killed in crash after tire blows
A Madeira Beach man was killed Monday afternoon when he was thrown out of the truck he was driving on Interstate 75 near Ellenton, Florida Highway Patrol officials said. Scott Edward Hinchliffe, 46, was driving south about 3:10 p.m. when a tire blew and he lost control. The truck veered off the highway and struck the concrete embankment to an overpass, throwing Hinchliffe out of the truck, killing him and scattering his truck's load across the highway, backing up traffic. Troopers said Hinchliffe was not wearing his seatbelt.
