According to an ORANGE COUNTY report – An 18-year-old Orlando man was killed and two other people were seriously injured in a crash early Sunday when the man’s pickup truck was hit by a sedan as he tried to pull a vehicle stuck on the side of Dallas Boulevard in Orange County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, an Orlando man, 18, was murdered and two others were critically hurt in a collision early on Sunday when the guy’s pickup truck was struck by a sedan as he attempted to tow a car stopped on the side of Dallas Boulevard in Orange County.
According to troopers, the collision happened just south of Oberly Parkway at 1:05 a.m. A 27-year-old Orlando woman driving a sedan northbound on Dallas Boulevard failed to observe the stopped vehicles as the Orlando man attempted to bring another driver’s pickup truck back onto the road from the east shoulder, according to a crash report.
According to police, the pickup truck driven by the Orlando male was struck by the sedan’s left front side, forcing the truck to flip over into the east shoulder and strike two adjacent onlookers: a 20-year-old Orlando lady and a 17-year-old Cocoa girl.
According to the report, those two were rushed to a hospital with severe but non-life-threatening wounds.
Miner was ejected from the pickup truck as it overturned and suffered fatal injuries as a result, troopers said.
Troopers believe Miner was not wearing a seatbelt in the crash, according to the report. A 17-year-old Orlando boy in the stuck pickup truck was not injured in the crash, and the woman who drove the sedan sustained minor injuries, troopers said.
An investigation of the fatal crash remains active and charges are pending at time of writing, the report states.
