Single Car Crash in Orlando During Rush Hour Kills One

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on January 10, 2018

It was on Wednesday, either during or just after rush hour, when police with the Orlando Police Department received a call directing them towards North John Young Parkway. Specifically, the caller indicated that an accident had occurred at the intersection of North John Young Parkway and Princeton Street. While the initial report from the Orlando Police Department did not name the individual who made the call, it is known that the accident took place when a high volume of cars were on the road, meaning that it was likely witnessed by numerous people.

When the police arrived, they found a grim scene. While details around the crash were in short supply from the primary report, it is known that at least one person died in the event. Other than that, the spokesperson for the Orlando Police Department who debriefed news agencies failed to offer much else. They did say that the accident is still under investigation, which implies that all details they have are either partial or not confirmed. The identity of the deceased individual was not released, although the report did not state whether this was because the individual’s identity was not known or because their next-of-kin had yet to be notified.

While the police and other first responders tended to the victims of the crash, all of the southbound lanes of North John Young Parkway were closed for a significant amount of time and along a significant stretch of road. It is believed that all of the major highways lanes were reopened by 10:40 in the morning, long after the lane closure had irrevocably disrupted the morning commute for hundreds of people.

At the time of this writing, it is not certain whether or not any other individuals were injured in the crash and, if so, how many. It does seem clear that only one car was involved in the incident, and that something happened—either in the cab or on the road—that caused the driver of this car to lose control of the vehicle. The car, careening wildly across the street, wound up flipping several times. The words from the Orlando Police Department’s initial statement indicated that there were no other cars involved in the crash.
