15-year-old girl survives triple fatal rollover crash on I-95 near Titusville

Northbound I-95 lanes reopen north of SR-407

TITUSVILLE, Fla. – Two men and a woman were killed and a 15-year-old girl suffered serious injures early Thursday in a crash that closed Interstate 95 in Brevard County for several hours, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

The triple fatal wreck happened around 5:30 a.m. in the northbound lanes of I-95 just north of State Road 407 near Titusville.

The FHP said a 2004 Ford Expedition carrying four people was going north on I-95 when a Kia SUV entered the highway from State Road 407. The two vehicles collided, but the events leading to the crash are under investigation, troopers said.

The Expedition overturned, ejecting a man and woman, the FHP said.

The driver, a 40-year-old Vero Beach man, and two passengers, a 28-year-old Sebastian man and a 44-year-old Orlando woman, died in the crash, the FHP said.

The girl, who lives in Sebastian, was taken to a hospital. She and the driver of the Expedition were wearing seat belts, according to an FHP report.

The driver of the Kia, a 54-year-old Lakeland man, was not injured, the FHP report said.

Anyone who witnessed the crash is asked to call the FHP at 407-737-2213.
