SUV Rollover Accident on I-95 in Volusia County Kills One, Another in Critical Condition

Posted on March 28, 2011

Traffic was backed up for hours on I-95 in Volusia County recently when the driver of an SUV, carrying six students from Pittsburgh heading to Miami for spring break, overturned several times, killing one student and leaving another in critical condition. A 21-year-old man passenger from New Jersey was ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene, while a 21-year-old woman from New York was ejected and airlifted to Halifax Medical Center where she is in critical condition. She was trapped under the Land Rover after it overturned several times. There is no word in this story from Central Florida News 13 whether or not they were wearing their seat belts.

The Florida SUV rollover crash occurred in the southbound I-95 lanes at mile marker 276 in Ormond Beach. The 21-year old female driver from Honolulu overcorrected the 1998 Land Rover when it began to swerve, when she lost control and the vehicle overturned multiple times. Two other passengers were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Our condolences go out to the friends and family of the man who passed away in this tragic accident. There is no word on what may have caused the driver to lose control but Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) says the cause is under investigation.
