A double fatal accident, involving two pickup trucks, occurred before 8:04 p.m. on September 13, 2021 at Uranus Trail on Osteen Maytown Road in Osteen, FL. Two teenagers died in the crash and two others were injured in the crash.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP), a 17-year-old boy from Osteen was driving a pickup truck toward the east on Osteen Maytown Road, when he suddenly made an exit through a left-hand curve, eventually losing control over his pickup truck.
The FHP crash report revealed that the pickup truck with three other teens as occupants entered a water-filled ditch and hit two trees before entering the road again and then overturned. The pickup truck further crashed into another pickup truck, heading toward the west. The second truck was driven by a 50-year-old man from Osteen.
The first pickup truck driver got partially ejected and was declared dead at the accident scene. The front right passenger of the first truck, a 19-year-old boy, was also ejected and declared dead at the scene. Both were not wearing seat belts.
The two rear passengers of the first pickup truck – a 14-year-old boy from Osteen and an 18-year-old man from Deltona, sustained severe injuries and were transported to the hospital. Both rear passengers were wearing seatbelts. The other pickup truck driver sustained minor injuries and was not transported to the hospital.
If any nearby person or vehicle were injured/damaged as a result of the truck driver’s negligence, there would likely be a valid personal injury claim.
