Daytona PD Identify Worker Involved In Fatal Accident


Daytona Beach, FL - The City of Daytona Beach worker involved in a fatal accident on beachside earlier this week has been identified.

Duane A. Simmons is a heavy equipment operator who was behind the wheel of a 2018 Dodge flatbed truck when it ran over and killed 34-year-old Dawk Klenk early yesterday morning on State Road A1A near Main Street.

The Daytona Beach Police Department also released 911 audio today of two witnesses who called for help moments after the vehicle ran Klenk over and both went into graphic detail about her injuries. That audio is posted below.

During a press conference yesterday, DBPD Chief Craig Capri says charges are not likely against Simmons since investigators think he didn't see Klenk before running her over.
