Titusville Resident Dies in Two-Car Crash at Busy Intersection

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on March 23, 2021

In the middle of March, a 29-year-old Titusville resident was driving down the western-bound lanes of South Street when he was involved in a car accident as neared the intersection between South Street and Rock Pit Road. Reports from the Titusville Police Department indicated that it was close to 1:30 in the afternoon on Sunday, March 14th, that the 29-year-old was traveling down the road. The reports also indicated that the 29-year-old was behind the wheel of a 2008 Honda, and that they were alone within their vehicle at the time.

While the 29-year-old in the Honda was headed west and nearing the intersection, a 25-year-old – also from Titusville – was behind the wheel of a 2018 Nissan Versa and traveling down Rock Pit Road towards the same merger of streets. At the intersection of Rock Pit Road and South Street, stop signs direct the flow of traffic. While it is not clear if there is four-way stop in place, the reports made sure to include the information that the Rock Pit Road lanes do feature a stop sign. When the 25-year-old, who was joined in their car by a juvenile who was not named in the reports, reached this stop sign, they did not properly halt their vehicle. Instead, the 25-year-old continued on through the intersection.

It was at this same moment that the 29-year-old was driving their Honda through the intersection of the two streets. As a result of both vehicles attempting to pass through the area at the same time, the two cars collided with considerable force. Emergency response crews were called immediately, and soon the area was full of paramedics, EMTs, and other first responders who attempted to offer medical assistance while also directing traffic through the area.

Despite the best efforts of the emergency medical teams, the 29-year-old in the Honda was declared dead at the scene of the crash. In the Nissan Versa, both the driver and their young passenger were injured during the collision, and both were transported from the scene of the crash to a nearby hospital. It is believed that both of them suffered injuries in the crash but that neither of their injuries were life-threatening.
