OVIEDO, Fla. - Police in Oviedo are investigating a deadly construction zone accident.

Two SUVs collided just before 11 p.m. Friday on E. Mitchell Hammock Road near Alafaya.

One male, 75-year-old Jesse Smith, was pronounced dead at the scene

Two females were taken to the hospital where one of them, 76-year-old Icena Smith, was later pronounced dead at the Oviedo ER. The second unidentified female is reported to have non-life threatening injuries.

According to the investigation so far, police say Mr. and Mrs. Smith were attempting to make a left turn from westbound Mitchell Hammock onto Clara Lee Evans Way when Mr. Smith failed to yield the right of way and turned into the path of a vehicle traveling east on Mitchell Hammock Road.

The eastbound vehicle hit the side of the Smith's vehicle and caused it to overturn.

Officers say no construction workers were present at the time of the crash.
