Three People Killed During a Multi-Vehicle Crash on I-95 in Volusia County

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on March 4, 2022

A local weather system classified by Florida meteorologists as “super fog” created dangerous driving conditions for motorists early Thursday morning and led to a multi-vehicle accident that claimed the lives of three individuals along Interstate 95 in Volusia County.

In an event referred to as a “mass casualty incident” by officers with the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office, seventeen vehicles were involved in five separate auto accidents along a stretch of I-95 close to the New Smyrna Beach exit on March 3, 2022. According to local authorities, it was approximately 1:30 a.m. on Thursday when law enforcement agencies were dispatched to the scene of multiple chain-reaction collisions located along the northbound lane of Interstate 95.

Preliminary reports from members of the Florida Highway Patrol indicate that troopers arrived at the crash site and discovered that eleven different vehicles had crashed into one another on I-95 North due to limited driving visibility from dense fog that had rolled into the area overnight. In addition to this multi-vehicle pileup, an accident involving an SUV, a van, and four semi-trucks also occurred in the adjacent southbound lane of the interstate.

Although the names of the victims are currently being withheld pending next-of-kin notifications, Volusia County emergency responders did state that a 54-year-old Titusville driver in a 2017 Jeep Renegade, a 51-year-old semi-truck driver from Hialeah, and a 25-year-old female passenger of a newer model four-door Nissan all suffered life-ending injuries during the multi-vehicle crash. Several other motorists with a variety of injuries were transported to local hospitals for further medical assistance.

Northbound and southbound traffic was redirected for a number of hours while roadway maintenance crews cleaned up a fuel spill and extinguished an asphalt fire that erupted from one of the semi-trucks involved in the accident.

This deadly collision is still under investigation by the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.
