Multiple Crashes on I-4 in Orange County Blamed on Rain

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on December 31, 2019

On the morning of Monday, December 23rd, the Florida Highway Patrol began to respond to numerous reports of collisions along Interstate 4 in Orange County. Initial reports from the scene of these various crashes indicates that the authorities have reason to believe that poor weather, primarily rain, was the cause of the accidents, although all reports failed to indicate just why investigators came to this conclusion.

Concerning the details of each of these crashes, we currently know very little. One of them took place along the eastern lanes of I-4 close to an exit for State Road 435. Reports from I-4 did not indicate how many cars were involved in this collision or whether or not any of the people who were inside of these cars suffered from injuries, life-threatening or otherwise. It is not known if the police have fully ruled out human error in the incidents or if they are considering also the possibility that individuals were driving their vehicles in unsafe manners shortly before the accident took place.

As a result of this collision, authorities shut down two of the eastern lanes. The lanes remained closed while the crash site was examined and assessed and the individuals involved in the crash tended to by emergency medical personnel. Again, it is not known if any of these individuals suffered from injuries as a result of the crash.

A second collision took place close to where I-4 meets the exit for Conroy Road. As was the case with the first accident discussed, we do not at this point know whether or not there were multiple cars involved in this accident or if the crash was the result of a single driver losing control of their car and then crashing into the guardrail or perhaps a tree. This incident caused the rightmost lane along I-4 to be closed throughout the early portions of Monday.

Like with the first incident, we do not know if this second crash resulted in the injury – serious or otherwise – of any of the individuals who were inside of the cars at the time.

It is not known how construction on the I-4 Ultimate Project may have played a part in any of the crashes which took place throughout the day in the area.
