Fatal Crash Along Orange County Beachline

A fatal accident took place late on Wednesday morning, shortly before 12:00pm, along a stretch of the Beachline in Orange County. The Florida Highway Patrol’s statement on the crash indicates that the deceased is believed to be a 21-year-old man from Rockledge, although no name or other identifying details are currently public knowledge. Further biographical information is pending contact with the dead man’s next of kin.

What is known is that the crash took place in the westbound lanes of a State Road 528 portion of the Beachline, close to the road’s 20th mile marker. The Florida Highway Patrol indicated that the accident, which happened around the intersection of Monument Parkway and State Road 528, occurred when the 21-year-old, who was behind the wheel of a 2005 Isuzu truck, approached a line of slowing traffic. The Rockledge man failed to slow down and collided with the back of the tractor trailer located directly before him.

The driver of the truck, an unnamed 42-year-old man from Kissimmee, was injured as a result of the violent impact between the car and the back of his truck. The Florida Highway Patrol reported that he was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center for treatment. His current condition is not known, although it is believed that the injuries he sustained were minor.

The 21-year-old man, on the other hand, suffered far more serious wounds as a result of the crash. The Florida Highway Patrol indicated that the first responders did everything they could, but still found themselves declaring him dead at the scene. It is not clear whether or not he was deceased by the time the ambulances arrived or if he died while treatment was underway.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol’s initial investigation, neither of the drivers involved in the crash tested positive for the influence of alcohol or other drugs. It is also believed that both of the drivers were wearing seat belts at the time of the collision.

Due to the lack of concrete knowledge regarding the reasons behind the 21-year-old’s failure to stop, the crash remains under investigation.
