Van blows tire, flips on I-4 in Volusia
Passenger in serious condition after being ejected from vehicle
DELTONA, Fla. – One person was ejected from a van and several others were injured early Tuesday in a crash on Interstate 4 in Volusia County.
The crash happened on I-4 west in Deltona.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the van was traveling westbound when one of its tires exploded. The driver lost control of the van, which struck a guardrail and flipped, troopers said.
One passenger was ejected and ended up in the eastbound lanes, the FHP said. The victim was taken to a hospital with serious injuries.
As many as five others might have been injured in the crash, the FHP said.
I-4 was closed in the area as troopers investigated the crash, but the interstate later reopened.
A second crash occurred in the same area when another driver slowed down to get a glimpse of the first crash, the FHP said. No one was injured, however.
