Three Dead, Three Seriously Injured in Brevard County Head-On Crash
A devastating head-on-collision that happened within the city of Titusville in Brevard County resulted in numerous fatalities, according to reports from the Florida Highway Patrol and the Titusville Police Department. These reports state that the incident happened close to 10:30 at night, along South Park Avenue, either close to or at the intersection of South park and Bell Terrace.
Two cars were involved in the collision: a 1986 Oldsmobile and a Ford Explorer. Both of these vehicles were carrying numerous individuals at the time and both were traveling in opposite directions down the roadway.
Currently, the investigation’s findings suggest that the Oldsmobile was headed southbound down South Park Avenue while the Explorer was traveling northbound. For reasons that were not stated, the investigators believe that the Oldsmobile was being driven at a rate of speed that was higher than the posted limit. Again, the reasons behind this belief is not clear although it is possible that tire tracks and the spread of debris led the investigators to this conclusion.
Due to circumstances that are currently not clear, the driver of the Oldsmobile lost control of this vehicle and was unable to regain control before the car left the southern lanes, crossed the median, and entered the northern lane. It was here that the Oldsmobile and the Explorer collided head-on, dealing significant damage to the occupants of both vehicles.
Two of the people traveling within the Oldsmobile were ejected from the vehicle at the moment of collision with the Explorer. It is not clear how many people were inside of the Oldsmobile, but we now know that three of them suffered fatal injuries as a result of the collision. The three were named in the initial report and we know they all Titusville residents.
Inside of the Ford Explorer were three people, two of whom are Titusville residents and a third who lives on Merritt Island. These three were all taken to a nearby hospital and treated for injuries that were described as being severe. It is not known what the condition of the injured is at the current time.
This collision is considered to be the single deadliest crash to take place in Brevard County since 2016.
