Fatal Florida Accident
An Orlando man died after being hit by a car while in a verbal altercation with another person on Sunday. The car versus pedestrian accident happened around 10:00 am on Colonial Drive, where witnesses say they saw the 20-year-old victim standing in the middle of the road arguing with another person. The witness says that the victim crossed Colonial Drive towards the other man, who was standing in the median. At one point, the victim veered away from the median and back into the westbound traffic lanes. Here he was hit by a car driven by a 62-year-old male. The 20-year-old was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

On Sunday, a little over a week ago, a collision occurred in Orlando that left one individual dead. The details released from the Orlando Police Department do not give a full picture of the events leading up to the collision between an SUV and a pedestrian, and they also give very little in the way of explanation of what happened during and after the collision. What facts were released give us the general idea of the crash, and it is therefore worthwhile to relate them here.

An Orlando man was arrested last Wednesday after crashing his car into his friend in a downtown parking garage. The report from the Orlando Police Department describes the incident in its most complete detail. It seems that at some point early in the morning, just before 4:00, the 25-year-old William Aloupis and two friends took an elevator down to the Lincoln Plaza Parking Garage to retrieve a car. Surveillance videos of the scene depict the three men as being visibly intoxicated. One of the friends, Jonathan Anglada, was unable to stand on his own, and the other two left him slumped against one of the parking garage’s walls as they made their way to the car, which belonged to Anglada.
This past Saturday, at close to 1:45 in the morning, a man named Edison Garzon, believed to be a resident of Kissimmee, was driving a Chrysler down the eastbound lanes of the Osceola Parkway. As he neared the point of the Parkway that comes close to the Florida Turnpike, Garzon approached a traffic light governing the intersection between the Parkway and another—as of yet unnamed—road. The light at the time that Garzon approached the intersection was showing red for the eastbound lanes, meaning that Garzon should have begun slowing down as he approached.
