Old Dixie Highway Accident | Orlando Accident & Injury Blog
A Sunday Flagler County accident in Bunnell killed five people, all of whom have now been identified and their families contacted. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the accident which took the five lives occurred just before noon on Sunday when Edwin Santana, a 58-year-old Miramar resident, began to turn left onto U.S. 1 from Old Dixie Highway. For unknown reasons, Santana, driving a 2008 Mazda Tribute, either did not see or was not concerned with a Ford F-250 that was driving north on U.S. 1. The Mazda and the Ford collided, the impact sending both cars spinning out of control and directly into a third vehicle, a 2016 Toyota Camry, which was in the southbound lane of U.S. 1, attempting to make a turn.
Last weekend a Flagler County, Florida car crash left five dead and three injured. It all started when a 2008 Mazda Tribute was T-boned while attempting to make a left turn from Old Dixie Highway onto US Highway 1. According to a report filed by the Florida Highway Patrol, as the 58 old male driver from Miramar, Florida, made his left turn, his vehicle ventured into the path of an oncoming 2000 Ford F-250 traveling northbound on US 1. The truck slammed into the driver’s side of the Mazda, causing the car to barrel into a 2016 Toyota Camry stopped in the southbound turning lane of US 1.
