1 Dead, 2 Critically Injured After Semi Strikes SUV Near Blue Cypress Lake Road
A 42-year-old Satellite Beach man was killed and two minors suffered serious injuries following a two-vehicle collision near Blue Cypress Lake Road, authorities said.
The man was driving a Honda Pilot on eastbound State Road 60 near Blue Cypress Lake Road. The man lost control of his SUV and struck a guardrail, concrete barrier and a tree due to the impact of a collision with a semi. There were two passengers, a 13-year-old girl and 11-year-old boy, both also from Satellite Beach and in the SUV.
Florida Highway Patrol troopers said the man lost control of the vehicle after his car was side-swiped by a semi. The impact jolted the vehicle toward the other side of the street, where it struck a concrete barrier and crashed into a guardrail on the right shoulder, troopers said.
The vehicle kept traveling eastbound and again drifted off the roadway and into the right shoulder, where it collided with a tree. How fast the vehicle was traveling was not immediately available.
Emergency medical service officials soon arrived on scene. The driver and the two passengers were transported to the Indian River Medical Center, troopers said. The man succumbed to his injuries and died shortly after he arrived at the hospital.
The driver was the only person not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, according to troopers. Troopers continue to investigate the crash.
