Recording System Could Help Probe of Miami Garbage Truck Plunge from I-95

Kaseem Smith, the garbage truck driver whose truck launched off I-95 and landed in a public Miami park, remained in critical but stable condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center on Tuesday.

Miami City Manager Daniel Alfonso said Smith was nearing the end of his shift after completing a recycling run when he lost control of the truck and it flew through a concrete barrier, landing about 100 feet below.

The Florida Highway Patrol is conducting an investigation into why the bizarre accident occurred.
