Police in Orlando are still looking into a car accident that killed one and injured two on November 16, according to sources. The four-car crash occurred on Interstate 4 in St. Mary’s when an SUV, driven by 31-year-old Chemwapuwa Jackson, rear-ended a Jeep Cherokee that burst into flames. The male passenger in the Jeep was burned and pronounced dead on the scene. The driver was flown to a hospital and remains in critical condition.
Two other cars were also involved, but the passengers and drivers were not injured. The accident is still under investigation and charges are pending. The accident has Orlando resident Jeanie Lynd shaken and nervous about driving on the highway in the future.
“We didn’t realize how bad it was, but now that we see the cars cut in half and burned out, it’s horrible,” said Lynd. “(My daughter) will never drive on the I-4 again. It will be Heathrow, International Parkway or Rinehart—any other way but this.”
