A female Vincentian masquerader died in Miami on Sunday after being struck by a truck providing music for a band in the Miami Broward One Carnival.

The woman has been identified as 54-year-old Jacqueline Annette Martin.

CBCMiami quoted Miami-Dade Police as saying that Martin was a masquerader in costume from the Mascots International Mas Band marching toward the main stage at the Miami-Dade County Fair and Expo.

A box truck with a trailer attached, stopped so the masqueraders could dance and perform for the event judges.

Martin’s cell phone dropped to the ground and rolled under the metal trailer. She went between the truck and trailer to retrieve her phone when the truck started moving again.

Martin was then struck by the trailer.

She was transported to Kendall Regional Trauma Center where she died.
