Deadly crash closes northbound lanes of I-95 in Volusia County

ORMOND BEACH, Fla. - A crash on Interstate 95 on Monday afternoon resulted in two deaths and multiple injuries as three vehicles collided near Ormond Beach, Florida. The crash shut down the northbound lanes of the interstate for several hours.

Troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) arrived at the scene just before 4 p.m. According to initial reports, the crash south of U.S. 1, at mile marker 272, involved a 2023 Toyota Corolla, a 2013 Ford Fiesta, and a 2022 Ford Ranger.

According to troopers, the Fiesta driver lost control of her vehicle, causing it to veer off the roadway onto the inside shoulder. In an attempt to correct the course, the driver swerved back onto the road, began rotating, and collided with the Corolla. The Fiesta then continued spinning into the outside lane, directly into the path of the Ranger.

The driver of the Fiesta, a 38-year-old woman, died. A 2-year-old girl who was in the back seat, also died, FHP said in its report. A 20-year-old woman in that vehicle was seriously hurt.
