Gut wrenching: 4 killed (3 children) after 15 year old speeds through stop sign

Published on

A tragic collision on Sunday evening in Poinciana, Osceola County resulted in the deaths of four individuals, with three of them being children. The incident occurred at approximately 6:55 p.m. on the crossroads of San Miguel Street and Laurel Avenue, as reported by the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP).

The collision was caused by a 15-year-old boy driving at a dangerous speed who failed to halt at a stop sign. His vehicle, a 2012 Chevrolet Impala, carried three other 15-year-old passengers. Heading north on Laurel Avenue, the teen’s negligence led to a devastating impact with a 2022 Honda HR-V that was progressing westward on San Miguel Street.

Post-collision, the Honda skidded onto a nearby grass verge and met with a light pole, the FHP’s detailed report noted.

A heart-wrenching result of the accident saw the 50-year-old female driver of the Honda and a child declared deceased on site. Tragically, two more children succumbed to their injuries in the hospital. The children’s ages were 1, 9, and 11. A 52-year-old male, also in the Honda, managed to survive but is grappling with severe injuries.
