46-year-old man dies in 4-car wreck in Melbourne
A 46-year-old Melbourne man was killed in a car crash on Wickham Road just north of Pineda Causeway.
The Florida Highway Patrol has not yet identified the man.
The man, John Wheeler, 46, was driving south on Wickham in a 1998 Honda Prelude. A 2011 Kia was also heading south – the Honda sideswiped the Kia and crossed the center median. The front of the Honda then hit a four-door Buick, causing it to spin and hit a fourth car – a Toyota Camry.
Wheeler died from his injuries.
The driver of the Buick, identified by FHP as Cynthia Anelli, 42, of Melbourne, and driver of the Toyota, Jorge Viera, 46, of Melbourne, were taken to hospitals. All four drivers were wearing seat belts.
Police are still investigating the crash, which occurred at about 5 p.m. They haven’t determined if the man who died was under the influence of alcohol. They don’t know if he was wearing a seat belt.
