Kenrick Moss, a 24-year-old, was driving down State Road 528 in Orange County at 8:40 on Friday Morning. For reasons that are not clear, Moss, who was behind the wheel of a 2001 Honda, was driving at 92mph, far exceeding the speed limit for this stretch of road. While going this speed, Moss drove past a Florida Highway Patrol officer who was in the process of checking the speed of passing drivers. When Moss flew by, the trooper left his post and began to follow the Honda.

While it is not known whether or not the Trooper immediately began to chase Moss or if they were planning on following him to see if the driver would slow down, what is known is that Moss began to change lanes. His driving became unstable, erratic even, and after changing lanes two separate times Moss collided with the driver side of a box truck. The driver of the truck momentarily lost control of his vehicle and collided with a nearby Jeep. The box truck then began to flip over, colliding with a pole supporting a traffic light before finally stopping its disastrous trajectory in a trench alongside the roadway.

Emergency response vehicles rushed to the scene, but when they arrived they found that they were not able to save the driver of the box car. Steve Brown, a 50-year-old, was behind the wheel of the box car during the crash. The paramedics announced him dead at the scene.

The driver of the Jeep, an unnamed 38-year-old woman, also suffered some injuries, although they are not believed to be life threatening. However, due to the violent nature of car accidents, even minor injuries can become serious affairs. For one thing, medical bills will likely be high, especially if they are connected with any sort of ongoing physical therapy. For another thing, an accident of this magnitude will often total all the cars involved. This means that it is entirely possible that the driver of the Jeep will not have a Jeep to drive once she leaves the hospital. The combination of medical bills and property damage is bad enough, but many individuals in similar situations also find that they are either forced to miss work for a period of time or are unable to transport themselves to work due to the loss of a vehicle. All of these factors make a timely recovery even more difficult to secure.

Kenrick Moss was arrested and taken taken to the Orange County Jail.
