Head-On-Crash in Seminole County Leaves One Dead, Two Injured

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on December 6, 2019

A head-on collision that took place within Seminole County on Monday, December 2nd, resulted in the death of a 48-year-old individual as well as the critical injury of an 18-year-old and the serious injury of a third person. The incident was reported as having taken place along State Road 46, close to where it intersects with Bella Foresta Place, just east of Longwood Markham Road.

Reports from the Florida Highway Patrol indicated that the accident happened just before 6:00 in the morning, when a 2005 Toyota was driving down the eastern lane of State Road 46. Witnesses to the incident stated that the driver of the Toyota had pulled their car into the western lanes in order to pass slower vehicles ahead of it in the eastern lanes. The area where the driver chose to do this was a non-passing zone, which usually means that the area has been deemed unsafe for passing.

At the same time as this individual was attempting to pass the other vehicles on State Road 46, a 2017 Ford pickup truck was traveling down the western lanes of the same road. The driver of the pickup saw the Toyota headed directly towards them and, in an effort to avoid a collision, swerved left. The driver of the Toyota also saw the potential crash approaching and, in a similar attempt to avoid it, swerved right. This meant that both the cars were still traveling directly towards one another.

Neither driver was able to correct their course at this stage, and the pickup truck and the Toyota collided head-on with considerable force. Witnesses to the crash called 9-1-1, and soon numerous emergency response crews were at the scene to administer medical aid.

The reports stated that the driver of the Toyota was not able to be revived. He was declared dead at the scene. The 18-year-old passenger within the Toyota was critically injured and rushed from the crash site to Central Florida Regional Hospital. Both the driver and the passenger of the Toyota were not wearing seatbelts.

The driver of the pickup truck was also taken from the area to a nearby hospital for treatment of serious injuries.

The crash remains under investigation.
