Fatal I-4 Accident
A three-vehicle crash on Interstate 4 near the St. Johns River Bridge has claimed the life of one man and injured a 23-year-old Deltona woman. According to a statement from the Florida Highway Patrol, the fatality was a 38-year-old Port Orange man. Troopers say the rear-end auto accident occurred around 1:15 a.m. on June 21 on I-4 on the Volusia-Seminole county line. The victim was driving his 1994 Jeep in the center lane when a 27-year-old Orange City man driving a 2001 Lexus approached from behind at a high rate of speed. Troopers say the man did not slow at all as he got closer to the victim and eventually slammed his Lexus into the rear of the victim’s Jeep.
A 25-year-old Orlando woman struck by five vehicles while walking across Interstate 4 in Volusia County on February 15 died from her injuries, according to Florida Highway Patrol accident investigators. Troopers said a truck, SUV and tractor-trailer all struck the woman after she was in a single-vehicle accident nearby. They said the woman had experienced an accident in the westbound lanes of I-4 near Deltona and was trying to get help when she was struck and killed by the vehicles. Orlando personal injury lawyer James O. Cunningham would like to remind everyone that if your car breaks down on a busy street or highway, you should remain in your vehicle until the police arrive.
