Man Dies in Single-Vehicle Rollover Crash on I-4
An Ormond Beach man died on Sunday night, March 13, when he was thrown from his vehicle on eastbound I-4 in a single-vehicle accident. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports the 46-year-old driver was in the center lane when he tried to change lanes to the fast lane then back to the outside lane where he lost control. The Honda Pilot overturned on the shoulder, ejecting the driver, who was not wearing a seat belt. He was taken to Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach where he died. Because there was a child seat in the back of the vehicle, rescue workers frantically looked for a child, but determined there was not one in the vehicle.
Our condolences go out to the friends and family of this accident victim. There is no word whether any other vehicle might have been involved in this deadly accident.
When a car drifts off the road, it is assumed that the driver was distracted, tired, or intoxicated. But there may be other causes of a single-vehicle auto accident. An experienced Florida auto accident attorney would want to know what the road conditions were at the time of the accident. Did a sudden dip where the asphalt ends cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle? Did the seat belts or tires fail?
