Deltona Woman Killed During Early Morning Car Crash in Orange County
Troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol are currently investigating a deadly wrong-way car crash that claimed the life of a Deltona woman early Sunday morning along Interstate 4 in Orange County.
Preliminary reports from members of the Florida Highway Patrol indicate that it was close to 2 a.m. on November 6, 2022, when a 27-year-old female from Deltona was driving a Volkswagen Eos in the westbound direction of Interstate 4, known locally as Fairbanks Avenue. As she approached the vicinity of mile marker 87, a 36-year-old man from Sanford driving a 2017 Jeep Renegade entered her lane and crashed head-on into her vehicle.
Orange County first responders and emergency medical personnel were dispatched to the scene of the accident and immediately transported the severely injured Deltona woman to Orlando Regional Medical Center. She was unable to survive and passed away shortly after arriving at the hospital.
The 36-year-old Sanford man sustained serious, but non-life-threatening injuries during the collision and was also taken to a nearby hospital for additional treatment. His condition is unknown at this time.
A third driver was also somewhat involved in this fatal auto accident after their 2019 Chevy Camaro sustained superficial damage when the first two vehicles crashed into their sports car as a result of the head-on collision. The driver of the Camaro was unharmed and remained at the scene to help local Orange County officers.
The westbound lanes of Interstate 4 in this area were closed for approximately four hours for local commuters and out-of-state travellers.
Authorities with the Florida Highway Patrol stated that all three drivers were wearing the seatbelts at the time of the crash. No formal charges have been filed in this case, although further details are expected to be released to the public once the investigation has been completed.
