Man Killed in Multi-Car Accident in Volusia County

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on August 12, 2012

A recent three-car auto accident on US-17 in Volusia County killed one man and sent another to a local hospital with serious injuries. The Florida Highway Patrol’s (FHP) investigation into the accident is still ongoing, but troopers expect to press charges against at least one of the drivers involved in the crash. Troopers say that a 33-year-old Pierson man was driving his 1995 Toyota Camry northbound on US-17 when he slowed to make a left turn. He was followed by a 41-year-old man, also from Pierson, who was driving a 2003 GMC. Troopers say that the driver of the GMC failed to slow down or stop his vehicle as the Camry slowed to make his turn and collided with the Camry.

When the front right side of the GMC collided with the rear of the Camry, the impact caused the GMC to drift into the southbound lanes, where it struck the driver’s side door of a Ford F-350 pickup truck driven by a 35-year-old man. The impact fatally injured the driver of the pickup and seriously injured the driver of the GMC. It is not known whether the driver of the Camry was injured in the crash. The accidents shut down US-17 in both directions for several hours while debris was removed from the roadway and troopers conducted their investigation.

Many accidents like this are caused by drivers who are:

Although FHP troopers have not yet filed charges against the driver of the GMC, it is likely that they will find that he was negligent and his negligence led to this multi-car accident.
