Osceola County Head-On Crash leaves One Dead

By Orlando Auto Accident Lawyer on December 27, 2017

A horrific accident in Osceola County a little over a week ago resulted in one death and four other injuries, two of them serious. A report from the Florida Highway Patrol recounts how a GMC SUV was headed westbound on State Road 60, close to 2:30 in the afternoon, when the driver, the 43-year-old Santana, lost control of the vehicle. It is believed that this happened right where State Road 60 and Peavine Road intersect.

Santana’s SUV raced off of the road’s right shoulder, after which she attempted to correct the vehicle’s course by pulling hard on the steering wheel. This resulted in overcorrection, and Santana’s car passed over the westbound lanes and into the eastbound lanes, where a Ford pickup truck suddenly found itself in the crosshairs of danger. Concepcion, a 57-year-old, was behind the wheel of the Ford. Santana’s sudden appearance before him did not leave Concepcion enough time to avoid the oncoming car and the Ford and the GMC collided head-on.

Two other drivers found themselves involved in the incident at this time, although the vast majority of damage had already been inflicted on the Ford and the GMC. It is believed that the drivers of the two other cars were treated for minor injuries, but it does not appear that either of them were hospitalized.

Concepcion suffered serious injuries as a result of the incident, and emergency response crews rushed him to Osceola Regional Hospital for treatment. At the time of this writing, it is not clear whether or not Concepcion is still at the hospital or if the medical personnel deemed him fit enough for release.

Santana herself was seriously injured in the incident as well, and the paramedics also transported her to Osceola Regional Hospital, but the brunt of the injuries were sustained by an unnamed 69-year-old man who was in the passenger seat of Santana’s GMC. It is believed that the attending medical personnel declared the elderly man dead at the scene of the accident.

The crash is still under investigation as authorities try to piece together what happened to cause Santana to lose control of her vehicle and whether or not the entire incident could have been avoided.
