Troopers said it happened shortly before 2 a.m. southbound at mile marker 240 – Kissimmee Park Road – in St. Cloud. 

According to officials, a Ford F-150 was being driven south on the Turnpike when it collided with the driver of a Ram 1500 pickup truck hauling a boat trailer.

The man was standing outside his vehicle on the outside shoulder of the Turnpike when the Ford F-150 failed to stay in its lane, striking him and the back of the boat trailer.

The 47-year-old Trevor, Wisconsin man, died at the scene, FHP said. The other driver was not hurt. 

One outside lane is blocked in the area as troopers investigate.
