2 killed in crash on Econ Trail at Curry Ford Road in Orange County

Third victim taken to Orlando hospital in critical condition

Two people were killed on a crash in Orange County.

ORLANDO, FLa. – Two men, ages 18 and 30, were killed and another 18-year-old was seriously injured Monday morning in a two-vehicle crash that closed a major intersection in Orange County, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

The double fatal wreck was reported at 5:55 a.m. on South Econlockhatchee Trail at Curry Ford Road, just west of State Road 417.

The FHP said one of the Orlando teens was driving a car south on Econ Trail and entered the northbound lanes, striking the other car head-on. The teen driver was seriously injured and his passenger, the other teen, was pronounced dead at a hospital.

The 30-year-old Orlando man, who was driving the other car, also died, troopers said.

All three victims were wearing their seat belts, according to an FHP report.

Charges are pending against the teen driver, the FHP said.

Econ Trail is closed in both directions, but the intersection with Curry Ford was reopened.
