Orlando police believe that illegal street racing may have been a factor in a recent hit-and-run accident that sent two people to an area hospital with serious injuries. Their investigation is still ongoing, but police say that the two victims were waiting for a bus along Millenia Boulevard when a Ford Focus struck them as they sat on a bench. The victims are a vacationing couple from England, who were taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center. Witnesses report that they saw a black Ford Focus and black Honda Accord speeding along Millenia Boulevard just before the accident occurred.
Law enforcement officials investigating a single-car accident that claimed the lives of three people say that the car’s impact was so intense that people calling 911 to report the accident said that the car blew up. An article on News-JournalOnline.com said that one male and two female passengers in the car were killed instantly around 8:30 on the evening of September 2, 2009, in the southbound lane of Nova Road just north of 15th Street in Holly Hill.
