Mile Marker 286 SUV accident
In early September, a devastating crash on the Florida turnpike killed three people. A 24-year-old driver in a Mercedes SUV struck a southbound Nissan Maxima in the early morning hours at mile marker 286, according to authorities. The driver had a suspended license for reasons currently under investigation. Both cars were flipped onto their sides and caught fire, and the Nissan’s male driver and female passenger, died on the scene, while an infant was thrown from the vehicle and died at Arnold Palmer Children’s Hospital. The driver of the Mercedes only suffered minor injuries.
