A crash at the intersection of State Road 19 and Dead River Road had traffic backed up in both directions for nearly 90 minutes early Wednesday morning. The accident occurred at approximately 7:30 a.m., right in the middle of rush hour traffic. A northbound GMC pickup, driven by 70-year-old James Rodney, was attempting to make a left hand turn when it collided with a southbound Toyota Corolla. The impact of the crash caused the Corolla to spin around in the intersection, but did not flip over. Emergency Medical Services arrived on scene shortly after the accident to check out both parties. Neither was seriously injured.

Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines had asked the court to reconsider an earlier decision.
