East Colonial Drive Collision
The bravery and quick thinking of several witnesses to a violent accent at the intersection of Orlando’s East Colonial Drive and Forsyth Road likely saved the life of a child. The accident, which led to the injury of six people, took place on Wednesday morning after a 2001 Honda Accord driven by Anaida Angulo collided with the rear end of a Toyota minivan being driven by an unnamed man from Maryland. Inside the car with the man from Maryland were the rest of his family, which included his three children.
