Two Killed in Orange County Head-On Crash

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on December 7, 2020

On a Friday evening during the middle of November, a 24-year-old individual was behind the wheel of a sedan and driving down the western lanes of Hoffner Avenue in Orange County. Inside the vehicle with the 24-year-old was a 39-year-old passenger. According to the reports from the Florida Highway Patrol that emerged later that same evening, neither of these two individuals was wearing a seatbelt at the time.

While the 24-year-old navigated their sedan down Hoffner Avenue’s western lanes, a 50-year-old was behind the wheel of a second sedan and driving down the eastern lanes of this same road. Behind the second sedan, an SUV, also being driven by a 50-year-old, was traveling eastward on Hoffner Avenue.

The reports from the Florida Highway Patrol stated that these two vehicles were headed towards one another on the evening of Friday, November 13th when the 24-year-old driver of the sedan attempted to change their lane of travel. Still attempting to remain heading west, the driver somehow managed to lose control of the vehicle while the process of a lane change was underway. The sedan then departed from the western lanes and crossed the median separating the westbound cars from those traveling east. Still unable to regain control of the vehicle, the driver entered the eastbound lanes at the time when the second sedan was close by.

Neither driver was able to avoid the following head-on collision, a crash that happened with such force that it caused both the 24-year-old and their 39-year-old passenger to be thrown through the windows of the car. The force also propelled the second sedan into the SUV.

When emergency response crews reached the area, the 24-year-old driver had already died as a result of their injuries. The 39-year-old passenger, while still alive when the EMTs and paramedics initially reached them, was declared dead shortly after arriving at a nearby hospital. Both the 50-year-old driving the second sedan and the 50-year-old driving the SUV suffered from minor injuries as a result of the crash. It is believed that they did not require hospitalization for this treatment and that both are recovering without further incident.
