ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – A 21-year-old Rockledge man was killed Wednesday in a crash on the Beachline in Orange County, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Christian Lake was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, which was reported at 11:50 a.m. on State Road 528 at mile marker 20 near Monument Parkway.

The FHP said Lake was driving a 2005 Isuzu truck west when the traffic in front of him slowed. He failed to slow down and struck the rear of a tractor-trailer, troopers said.

The driver of the semi, Miguel Lopez Febus, 42, suffered minor injuries and was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center, the FHP said.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts, and alcohol did not play a role in the crash, troopers said.

 

The wreck remains under investigation.
