A 37-year-old Daytona Beach driver died after a crash on Interstate 95, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The accident occurred around four miles south of Martin Highway and involved a four-door 2009 Honda.
FHP authorities are waiting to inform the driver’s family before releasing his identity. The Honda driver was traveling north on I-95 when the driver of another vehicle lost control and crashed into him. Subsequently, the Honda crashed into the median and then rolled over. The driver was not wearing a safety belt.
An eyewitness described the incident as “horrific.” Additionally, he said “It happened before anyone could take notice.”
Attempts to resuscitate the driver by first responders proved unsuccessful; he was declared dead at the scene.
“Details surrounding events that led to the crash are gradually unfolding and it could have resulted from the recklessness of another driver,” the FHP spokesperson said. “Remember that road safety tips aren’t for you alone. What you do on the road affects other drivers too,” she added.
This wreck has led to traffic congestion. It is advisable to avoid this route and take alternative routes.
No further information is available at this time. Drive with caution and stay safe.
