Jacksonville, Fl - A crash report from the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office showed the driver of the Coca-Cola truck that smashed into a building Wednesday blamed a wasp for losing control.
Calvin Hollis told police a wasp flew into his cab and caused him to lose control of the delivery truck. The truck plowed into Discount Seafood along West Beaver Street just before 5 p.m., according to the report.
The crash report also indicates the driver struck the back of a bus before slamming into the Fish market.
JSO ticketed Hollis for careless driving.
A massive pile of rubble along West Beaver Street was the only tangible remains of fish market Thursday morning.
The crash sent six people to the hospital, according to the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department.
The crash report stated the incident resulted into $40,000 in damage to the fish market.
The area on West Beaver Street at North Myrtle Street was closed Wednesday as officials investigated the incident.
Diesel fuel was also spilled into the street and JFRD worked to clean up the spill.
Some of the building was still standing after the crash, but JFRD said the structure was not safe and construction crews tore down the rest of the fish market overnight.
JFRD said the injured people are expected to be okay.
WOKV reached out to Hollis but the person who answered the phone hung up and has not returned our call.
