Lake Underhill Road Accident
This past Sunday, at some point during the afternoon, an elderly man was attempting to navigate the parking lot for the Advanced Auto Parts located on Lake Underhill Road in Orlando when he somehow lost control of his vehicle. One of the crash’s witnesses, a woman who is employed at an animal hospital located near to the Advanced Auto Parts, told the Orlando Police Department that she saw the incident occur and was ultimately able to rush to the assistance of the car’s driver after he became trapped inside their vehicle as it sank into a nearby pond.

A senior at Timber Creek High School was recovering recently after being struck by a car as she walked to a school bus stop. The 17-year-old Orlando girl had just missed her bus and was walking across Mark Twain Boulevard around 6:30 a.m. to catch it at the next stop when she was struck by a white Honda S2000. She was taken to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children for treatment after the pedestrian accident, but her condition was not known at the time the Orlando Sentinel article was published. A Florida Highway Patrol spokesperson said that the girl’s injuries did not appear to be serious.
