T-Bone Crash in Orlando Leaves One Dead, Two Injured

A Saturday Night crash in Orlando on the 3rd of March left one person dead and several others in the hospital after a T-bone crash at the intersection of Wetherbee Road and Bohannon Boulevard. The Florida Highway Patrol responded to the emergency calls reporting the crash and were some of the first official units on the scene.

According to their report, the collision took place sometime around 9:05 in the evening. An Orlando man was behind the wheel of his Volkswagen Jetta and driving down Wetherbee Road’s leftmost eastern lane. As he neared the intersection of Wetherbee and Bohannon Boulevard, the Jetta’s driver made the decision to turn left off of Wetherbee. This would have placed him in Bohannon Boulevard’s northward lane.

As the Jetta’s driver turned his vehicle off of Wetherbee and began to cross the western lanes of that same road, a Toyota Camry being driven by a 21-year-old who was not named in the initial report approached the intersection. Traveling in Wetherbee’s western lanes, the Camry’s driver either failed to spot or did not have enough time to avoid the Jetta. The two vehicles collided with one another, with the Camry T-boning the Jetta and inflicting massive damage to both the car and the car’s driver.

Paramedics were at the scene shortly after the incident took place, but there was unfortunately nothing that they could do for the badly injured driver of the Jetta. He was declared dead at the scene of the incident.

The driver of the Camry and the car’s 16-year-old passenger both suffered injuries in the accident and were subsequently transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center for treatment. The initial report indicated that the injuries suffered by the two individuals in the Camry were minor and that both of the individuals are expected to make full recoveries without unnecessary complications.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers continue to investigate the crash itself to see if they can discover just what it was that caused the incident in the first place. While we know that the Jetta made the turn in front of the Camry, we do not know why the driver of the Jetta felt that this was an appropriate time to make that turn nor why the driver of the Camry was unable to stop before colliding with the Jetta. The Florida Highway Patrol will issue updates to the story as necessary.
