WEST PALM BEACH- A body in a bag was found in a pesticide truck stopped on the shoulder of Interstate 95.
West Palm Beach police officials say a Road Ranger spotted the small red Toyota pickup early Monday. Inside, they found 53-year-old George Barahona and his 10-year-old son Victor Vocter. Both were conscious when rescuers arrived, but taken to the hospital for apparent treatment for chemical exposure.
In the back of the truck, firefighters found an unlabeled open plastic container containing an acid-like substance. That's when they found the body in a bag. Police did not release an identity on the dead person.
The truck belonged to CJ Pest Control in Miami. But officials were not able to reach anyone at the business on Monday.
