A Georgia couple and their infant daughter were killed early Sunday morning when their Nissan Maxima flipped and became engulfed in flames after being rear-ended by a Mercedes SUV. Thomas Garza, 23, and his fiancé, Lillian Luna, 20, were both pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, while their daughter died later that day at the Arnold Palmer Children’s Hospital. Family of the victims reported that the couple was on their way to Disney World to celebrate their daughter’s first birthday.
According to accident investigators, a recent two-car accident in Poinciana killed a 19-year-old man and critically injured three children after a car crossed the center line and collided head-on with another vehicle. The Polk County Sheriff’s Office said that a 23-year-old St. Cloud woman was driving a 2002 Dodge Neon east on Cypress Parkway near Laurel Avenue about 10:45 a.m. when she drifted over the center line and collided with an oncoming 2008 Suzuki SX4. The collision caused both drivers to lose control of their vehicles, which came to a rest on the north shoulder of the Parkway.
