A 17-year-old has been detained and accused of vehicular murder in connection with the rollover crash on January 11 that claimed the life of an East Ridge High School student. According to police records, a 2007 BMW and a 2004 Chevrolet pickup were both in the southbound right-turn lane of U.S. Highway 27 just north of Legendary Boulevard when police arrived at the scene at around 6 o’clock.
The arrest document states that a caller to 911 reported seeing a white passenger car “driving at an extremely high rate of speed and swerving through traffic in a reckless way, cutting vehicles off on northbound U.S. 27 prior to colliding.” All of the passengers, including the dead girl who was riding in the front passenger seat of the BMW, were stuck in the cars, including the drivers.
All were able to be extricated from the rubble, with the exception of the female East Ridge High School student. The 17-year-old was evacuated, along with two other passengers, to Orlando Regional Medical Center with serious wounds. His two companions underwent surgery due to many damaged bones.

The pickup’s driver was also airlifted, while the passenger was sent to South Lake Hospital by ambulance. According to the arrest affidavit, the driver of the passenger automobile attempted to evade slow-moving traffic by changing lanes but lost control, spun the vehicle counterclockwise, and hit a raised median with the passenger-side tires. After that, it started to roll over two lanes of southbound traffic.

The pickup truck struck the passenger car’s roof head-on as it entered the right lane of U.S. 27 while it was on its passenger side. Due to this, the car’s wheels began to roll up and onto the pickup before rolling onto the ground. Feed the passion for your hometown and connect to the tales that make it unique.
