Woman Killed In SR 60 Crash, Florida Highway Patrol Investigation Underway
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — A 61-year-old Vero Beach woman died in a crash with a pickup truck on State Road 60, highway officials said.
Florida Highway Patrol reported the woman’s 2012 gray Mazda sedan passed through a red light on State Road 60 at 90th Avenue into the path of a 2013 Ford with four Clewiston men inside.
They were uninjured, FHP officials said.
Indian River County Fire Rescue took the woman to Cleveland Clinic Indian River Hospital, where doctors pronounced her dead.
The crash happened just east of Interstate 95 on State Road 60 at 90th Avenue, which passes through the highway north-to-south near convenience stores, hotels and fast food restaurants, according to the highway agency.
Highway officials stated the car driven by the woman failed to stop for a red light at the intersection of State Road 60 as she approached the highway in the northbound lane of 90th Avenue.
The pickup was moving eastbound on State Road 60 and struck the front of the car with its left side, according to the FHP report.
State troopers are still looking into the crash, officials said.
FHP did not release the names of those involved in the crash, citing Marsy’s Law, passed in 2018.
