Police investigators say that a 63-year-old man was killed and two other people were injured recently when a woman backed her car 40 feet into a medical office building in New Smyrna beach. Police report that the 78-year-old driver backed her car into the Coronado Medical Office Building on Palmetto Street shortly before 2 p.m. Although their investigation is ongoing, police say that the woman somehow backed the vehicle directly between two pillars before plowing 40 feet into the lobby of the building. There were several people waiting in the lobby for appointments at the time of the accident, including the fatally injured man.
A two-year-old Port Orange boy was treated in an Orlando hospital recently for injuries he suffered in a dog attack. The accident investigation is still underway, but witnesses say the boy was playing on the front porch of a relative’s home when a dog described as a pit bull mix attacked him. Orlando Police say the boy was with his parents visiting the home of relatives at 419 Leslie Drive when he was attacked by the dog and suffered undisclosed injuries. Relatives rushed the injured boy to Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach for treatment for multiple puncture wounds and lacerations, and the boy was then transferred to Florida Hospital in Orlando where he is in stable condition.
