A head-on collision in Florida left one woman dead and injured three other people, two of them young children, on Feb. 14. The accident occurred just after 9 a.m. on State Road 60 in Osceola County. A 19-year-old Plantation man was traveling in a four-door Volkswagen in the westbound lanes of the highway when, according to police, his vehicle entered the eastbound lanes while passing other westbound vehicles. The Volkswagen then struck a four-door Hyundai traveling in the eastbound lanes. The force of the impact sent the Hyundai crashing into a guardrail. It then caught fire.
The 56-year-old Miami woman driving the Hyundai died at the scene of the accident. A 4-year-old girl in the Hyundai suffered critical injuries in the crash, while a 6-year-old boy suffered serious injuries. Emergency crews took both of the children, who are cousins, to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando. The Volkswagen's driver suffered minor injuries.
