Friday morning turned fatal for two construction workers and injured one in Jupiter, FL, when a vehicle struck them on the work site, according to ABC’s WPBF-TV. The June 26th car-pedestrian accident took place when a woman who was driving a northbound Toyota Solara on Alt A1A collided with the workers and hit another vehicle around 12:21 a.m. According to police, 53-year-old Steven Dunn and 34-year-old Jesus Antonio Resendiz-Banales were resurfacing the road when the vehicle struck them, and they were pronounced dead at the scene. Palm Beach County resident Clint Talley was also involved in the accident but sustained non-life threatening injuries and was transported to Jupiter Medical Center for treatment.
