The Florida Highway Patrol has identified the fifth person who died in a horrific fiery crash that claimed the lives of five young people.
Investigators say 27-year-old Kedan D. Tillett of Fort Pierce was driving the Dodge Dakota that burst into flames in St. Lucie County.
Earlier, FHP identified the other deceased individuals as Anthony Victor, 21, of Fort Pierce, Anthony M. Martin,16, of Fort Pierce, Darien L. Douglas, 21, of Port St. Lucie and Alexis Chaney, 17, of Fort Pierce.
“I miss her smile, I miss everything about her because she was the joy of the family,” said the mother of one of the deceased.
The 64-year old woman is still fighting through the pain and holding her family tight.
According to FHP, a 2004 GMC Yukon driven by a 21-year-old man of Fort Pierce was traveling south on S. 25th Street approaching Midway Road when he crashed into the rear of the Dodge Dakota.
The crash caused the Dakota to become fully engulfed in fire, killing the driver and four occupants.
