At approximately 9:25 p.m. on March 12, a bizarre motor vehicle accident occurred on Interstate 4 in Volusia County, and a couple visiting from Missouri is dead as a result. A 66-year-old man died in the crash, and his 69-year-old wife succumbed to her injuries later at the hospital.
According to witnesses, the accident transpired when the westbound driver of a Chevrolet pickup truck apparently lost control after changing lanes. The pickup truck went off the road and into the median before striking the guardrail. At that point, the pickup became airborne and subsequently landed on the eastbound GMC sport utility vehicle occupied by the couple.
