On April 7, it was reported that a 68-year-old man was killed after he became involved in a car accident in Florida. Authorities reported that the incident occurred on State Road 54 near Trophy Boulevard at approximately 10:40 a.m.
According to the available report, a 38-year-old female driver was traveling east on State Road 54 when she came to a stop in the center lane to avoid striking an animal in the road. As she slowed, the 18-year-old driver of a Volkswagen vehicle that was directly behind her attempted to change lanes but struck the stopped vehicle and a Dodge van that was in the vicinity. The impact caused the Dodge to be pushed into the oncoming lanes where it struck a 2008 Toyota pickup truck that was being driven by the 68-year-old man.
