Orange County Crash Leaves Two Dead, Four Injured

At the intersection of Semoran Boulevard and Hanging Moss Road in Orange County on Tuesday night an accident occurred when a car attempted turn from Semoran Boulevard’s left lane into a parking lot and collided with the right side of another vehicle. Based on the report by the Florida Highway Patrol, we know that the first vehicle, a 1995 Honda Civic, made the left turn, apparently unaware that the second car, a 2015 four-door Ford, was traveling directly across the Civic’s proposed path.

Colliding with the Civic’s right side, the violence of the Ford’s impact caused the Civic to split into two pieces. Directly as a result of the accident, two of the individuals in the Civic, Joseph Masseria and Gary Maharaj, both of whom were 37-years-old at the time of the crash, died at the scene. Even though he experienced the same intensity of physical trauma, a third passenger inside of the Civic, the 37-year-old Claudette Rambissoon, survived the initial crash, although her injuries were severe. Following standard protocol, Rambissoon was rushed to Orlando Regional Medical Center, where she was listed as being in critical condition (her current condition is not known).

Going off of the Florida Highway Patrol’s report, it seems as though all of the individuals inside of the Ford (the 18-year-old driver, Dalton White, the 20-year-old Ryan McClintock, and the 18-year-old Jesse Weigand) made it through the accident without suffering tremendous injuries. However, the driver and the two passengers were all taken to the hospital as a precaution. In circumstances such as an accident of this magnitude, even the most minor seeming injuries are often revealed to be severe in the long term. Just because an individual’s injuries don’t seem overly severe in the immediate aftermath of an accident doesn’t mean that more grim side effects of such intense bodily trauma won’t begin to manifest themselves in the weeks and months following.

Keeping this in mind, if you or someone you love is involved in an accident, it is important to observe the victim closely in the following days to see whether or not a greater level of damage has occurred than was previously observed.
