There seems to be no explanation for why a St. Augustine man suddenly drove off of Interstate 95 in Volusia County and crashed his vehicle, ending his life. The auto accident happened Thursday, November 10, when the 56-year-old man was on the inside lane of the highway.
The Orlando Sentinel does not report which direction he was travelling but for some reason, his 2006 Hyundai drifted across three lanes of traffic and onto the shoulder, where he continued about 100 feet before colliding with a concrete embankment wall near the LPGA Boulevard exit. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the man died at the scene. There is no other information as to what may have caused this horrific crash.
Our condolences are extended to his friends and family.
