According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a car drove through a stop sign and struck a retention pond in Orange County on Monday morning, seriously injuring an Orlando man.
All the northbound lanes of Alafaya Trail in the vicinity had to be closed due to the accident, which occurred at 6:35 a.m. at State Road 408. Later, the streets were opened again.

“The vehicle missed the traffic light, actually, traveled through traffic light at a high rate of speed,” FHP Lt. Channing Taylor said. “It (crossed) all the northbound and southbound lanes and over the curb into a retention pond area that’s on the eastside of the interchange.”
According to Taylor, it’s unknown if the driver experienced a medical episode. The 41-year-old man was transported to a hospital as a trauma-alert patient by Orange County Fire Rescue, who arrived on the scene and lifted the entire vehicle out of the pond.

In partnership with the Florida Department of Transportation, Taylor stated that,
“we’ll think these things through when we start noticing a trend.” “We’ll examine the road’s engineering. We’ll take a look at the stop sign.”

To avoid similar catastrophes in the future, we’ll examine a wide range of distinct factors. We’ll work with FDOT to determine whether that justifies installing a barrier there.
