Troopers said one of the workers failed to put the truck into park before he left the vehicle, causing the truck to roll forward toward them.

According to a crash report, the front of the truck hit one of the workers, pinning him against the ATM.

Afterward, the truck continued across the parking lot and crossed over Pine Cone Drive, exiting to the west shoulder and eventually stopping after it hit a tree, troopers said.

One of the workers, a 58-year-old man from Daytona Beach, was taken to Halifax Hospital in Daytona Beach with serious injuries, FHP said.

No other injuries, including any involving the 59-year-old Port Orange worker, were reported.
