Man Who Jumped From Moving Truck In Pierson Found Dead
Volusia County, FL-Deputies say an argument between friends ended in tragedy when one man jumped from a moving truck just before midnight Saturday night. The body of 34-year old Bryan Robinson of Ocala was located Sunday after an extensive search.
VCSO spokesman Gary Davidson says three men from Marion County traveled to Volusia County for the weekend. The three co-workers planned to go fishing and get a group tattoo. Davidson says two of the men had their tattoos completed Saturday and got impatient when the third man's was taking an extended time to be done. They told the man they were leaving to drive home and he could go with them or stay behind to get the tattoo finished. He left with them and became increasingly angry on the drive. The friends told deputies at some point near Pierson the man opened his door while the vehicle was moving and jumped from the truck. The driver said he was slowing down at the time and was probably doing 40 mph.
The friends stopped and looked for the man and didn't find him. That's when they called 911. Air One spotted the body just before 9:45 AM Sunday on the grassy shoulder of West S.R. 40, just east of Bert Royal Road.
The incident remains under investigation.
