A dump truck struck two vehicles and injured four people, two of them critically, in a recent accident in Volusia County. Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) accident investigators say that the 33-year-old driver of the dump truck was driving northbound on State Road 415 just after noon one recent day when he failed to notice that traffic in front of him had slowed. FHP troopers say the driver first struck the rear of a Kia passenger car driven by a 63-year-old Edgewater man and then continued into the northbound lanes, where he struck a Nissan Maxima. After striking the Nissan, the truck continued on the shoulder for a short distance, where it struck and destroyed several mailboxes and a telephone pole.
An Orlando chiropractor has been charged with leaving the scene of a fatal motorcycle accident in February that claimed the life of a Fort Myers woman. The Lake Mary doctor who describes himself as one of Central Florida’s top doctors was booked into the Seminole County jail recently but released shortly thereafter on $50,000 bail for his involvement in the Feb. 26 hit-and-run motorcycle accident that killed the 50-year-old rider.
