One Dead Following Rollover Car Crash On Interstate 95 Near Vero Beach
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — One person died in a rollover crash on Interstate 95 near Vero Beach, troopers and the Florida Highway Patrol said. The Florida Highway Patrol has not released the name of the deceased, pending notification of family.
Two others in the vehicle, 30-year-old Jalisa Moreland of Miami Gardens and 39-year-old Taryn Martin Session of Lauderhill, were injured in the crash. The accident occurred on northbound I-95, just south of the State Road 60 exit.
A 33-year-old spokesman for the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office said, a blue SUV was traveling north when it collided with a black Acura and then rolled and landed on its roof, briefly trapping two of the occupants. Reports say one of the vehicle’s tires failed causing the rollover.
They were freed by Indian River County Fire Rescue. Moreland was taken to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center & Heart Institute and Session was taken to Indian River Medical Center.
Northbound lanes were shut down for over an hour.
No one in the Acura was believed to be hurt.
The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
