60-Year-Old Kissimmee Resident Fatally Injured in Two Car Crash

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on July 22, 2020

Witnesses are being sought by the Florida Highway Patrol following an incident that took place on Monday, July 20th, within Osceola County. The incident in question was an automobile accident that involved at least two vehicles and resulted in the death of a 60-year-old Kissimmee resident.

It was shortly after 7:30 in the evening when reports began to reach emergency dispatchers regarding an incident between two cars at the intersection of U.S. 192 and Vineland Road. When the troopers reached the area, they found that two cars had been involved as described in the initial calls and that both were in fairly mangled condition after their collision with one another.

Leading up to the crash, an individual was driving their SUV down the southern lanes of Vineland when they reached the intersection of U.S. 192. At this time, a car being driven by a 23-year-old Orlando resident was traveling down U.S. 192 and headed towards the same intersection. It is believed that the intersection is governed by a traffic light, although an investigation has yet to state whether it was U.S. 192 or Vineland that had a green light at the time when the two drivers reached the intersection.

When the drivers reached the intersection, both attempted to drive through the area, a situation that resulted in the two cars crashing into one another. The force of the impact forced the SUV to leave the roadway and collide with a tree that was standing close to the asphalt. The force of the crash and following collisions caused the 60-year-old driver and their passenger, also a 60-year-old Kissimmee resident, to suffer severe injuries. It is possible that these injuries were made worse by the fact that neither of the two inhabitants of the car were wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident.

The driver of the SUV was transported to a nearby hospital, but their injuries were too severe for treatment and they were declared dead sometime after reaching the medical center. The SUV’s passenger was taken to a hospital with serious injuries.

The 23-year-old driver of the second vehicle was also not wearing a seatbelt and was also injured as result of the crash. It is not believed that their injuries were life-threatening.
