Volusia County Rear-End Collision Severely Injures Two Individuals

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on November 30, 2021

Traffic detectives with the local Volusia County authorities are currently searching for the driver responsible for a hit-and-run collision that seriously injured a pregnant woman and her passenger this past Saturday evening along Howland Boulevard in Deltona.

According to preliminary accident reports from the Volusia County Sheriff’s Department, it was approximately 11:30 p.m. on November 27, 2021, when a pregnant woman and her male passenger were traveling in the westbound direction of Howland Boulevard in her green 2004 Ford Focus. As the sedan approached the street’s intersection with Forest Edge Road near Deltona High School, a silver 2020 Kia Optima seemingly appeared out of nowhere and rear-ended the Ford Focus at a high rate of speed. The impact from the collision pushed the Ford Focus down the road for nearly 300 feet before it finally came to a complete stop. The driver of the Kia Optima fled the scene of the crash on foot and left the vehicle behind.

Deltona first responders and Volusia County deputies were immediately dispatched to the accident site and found the pregnant driver and her passenger to be suffering from serious injuries sustained during the car crash. Both victims were temporarily stabilized for transport and were then taken to the Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach. The driver was said to be in stable, but serious condition, however, her passenger was unstable and in critical condition by the time they arrived at the medical facility. Officials indicated that their unborn child was alive, but it was unclear if it suffered any injuries during the collision.

Volusia County investigators are directing their attention to finding the person who was driving the silver 2020 Kia Optima, which has now been determined to be a rental vehicle. Although the local authorities worked all weekend long to find this vehicle’s driver, they have yet to locate the individual.
