One Killed, One Injured in Seminole County Head-On Collision

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on October 10, 2016

A car crash happened near to the Orlando Sanford International Airport around 12:30 on Monday that left one individual dead and another seriously injured. The Florida Highway Patrol has issued a report, and Sgt. Kim Montes has gone on record to state just exactly what the authorities believed occurred and why.

This statement says that Michael Rosenblum, a 26-year-old man, was driving south along State Road 417, close to where exit 49 links the State Road to Lake Mary Boulevard. For reasons that are currently unknown, Rosenblum drove his 2007 Subaru across the grassy median separating the northbound and southbound lanes and entered northbound traffic driving in the opposite direction.

What happens next is fairly predictable, although this makes it no less shocking and alarming. Apparently, Rosenblum drove his car through the oncoming traffic until it connected head-on with a 2004 Dodge pickup truck. The driver of the pickup, a 43-year-old man from Lake Mary named Jason Anderson, was unable to avoid the oncoming Subaru. As a result of the impact, the Dodge flipped over and up onto a guardrail bordering 417. Emergency crews rushed to the scene and pulled Anderson from the wrecked Dodge. He was immediately rushed to Central Florida Regional Hospital for treatment. The latest news states that his injuries are severe, however it is believed that he will survive.

Rosenblum, on the other hand, did not survive the accident. When the emergency response teams reached him he was declared dead at the scene.

Traffic through the area was directed away from the scene and down State Road 434 during the duration of the cleanup and initial investigation, but all lanes were reopened later in the day.

Sgt. Montes says that the investigation into the reasons behind the accident are currently ongoing, however it is believed that alcohol was not a factor for the deadly crash. As law enforcement look for reasons behind this senseless death and injury, the families of both Rosenblum and Anderson are left with the pain of either losing a family member or seeing a family member’s life irrevocably altered.
