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.
