Five Family Members Killed in T-Bone Crash with SUV in Lake Mary

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on March 13, 2021

According to preliminary collision reports from the Florida Highway Patrol operating within Orange County, five members of the same family tragically lost their lives this past Thursday evening after their car was involved in a violent side-impact collision with an oncoming vehicle at the intersection of Clarcona Ocoee Road at Gaymar Drive in Lake Mary.

It was approximately 7:55 p.m. on March 11th, 2021, when authorities with the Florida Highway Patrol and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office were first notified of a two-vehicle collision with potential fatalities around the vicinity of Clarcona Ocoee Road and Gaymar Drive. Upon their arrival at the crash site, officers discovered two badly damaged vehicles – a Chevy Suburban SUV and a Hyundai sedan – with multiple unresponsive victims in the roadway requiring immediate emergency medical assistance. Sadly, the Orange County Fire Rescue quickly determined that 5 individuals, who were later identified as passengers of the Hyundai, had already passed away due to the severe injuries they sustained in the accident. The driver of the sedan was reported to be in serious condition as she was transported to an area hospital. The driver of the SUV, a 28-year-old Apopka resident, sustained only minor injuries in the incident.

As both law enforcement departments worked diligently to decipher exactly what occurred in the moments leading up to this horrific auto accident, they were finally able to successfully piece together a timeline of events. In a statement to the press from Florida Highway Patrol spokesperson Lt. Kim Montes, she details that the Hyundai sedan had been driving in the western direction along Clarcona Ocoee Road carrying six occupants: Antoinette Oliver, 30; Liza Jackson, 25; Chloe Oliver, 5; Olivia Jackson, 4; and King Oliver, 5 months old. As the Hyundai approached Gaymar Drive, the driver attempted to make a left-hand turn through the intersection, however, this maneuver put the Hyundai in the direct path of the Chevy Suburban. Unable to avoid the sedan, the SUV t-boned the Hyundai with such force that it caused the small passenger vehicle to split in half…ejecting everyone from within the vehicle except for the driver.

The Florida Highway Patrol and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office are continuing to investigate this heartbreaking accident. Here at the Law Offices of James O. Cunningham, P.A., we’d like to extend our deepest condolences to everyone involved in this collision.
