This morning, a woman was murdered when she slammed into a semi-truck with her car in the northbound lanes of I-95, just south of Matanzas Woods Parkway. The victim’s head was severed. The Volvo semi-driver truck’s was unharmed. The crash is being looked into by the Florida Highway Patrol. Traffic on I-95 south of Palm Coast Parkway is backed up due to the closure of the northbound lanes of the roadway between Palm Coast Parkway and Matanzas Woods Parkway. Just after 8:30 this morning, in broad daylight and clear skies, the sedan rear-ended the semi that was in the center lane. When a witness observed the collision take place, they quickly alerted the authorities.
The cause of the crash has not yet been given by the authorities. But a witness who saw the crash take place described the context this way, in a comment on FlaglerLive’s Facebook page: “Traffic was slowing fast due to an earlier accident and they had the far left lane blocked off to merge. To give additional warning, the cones and the merging sign should have been placed further back on 95. The previous tractor trailer was still in the guardrail and fire trucks and police were still at the earlier accident.” Traffic had apparently halted soon before the incident, according to the witness, which suggests that the semi was preparing to stop.
The witness stated, “With debris just flying everywhere and cars screeching, it was like watching a scene from a movie in my rearview mirror.” “I’m so sorry for the people involved and prayers go out to all who suffered in that.” Within minutes, a trooper from the Florida Highway Patrol, together with members of the Palm Coast Fire Department, Flagler County Fire Rescue, and the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office, arrived on the scene. Authorities momentarily stood by an emergency helicopter, but the person was pronounced dead at the site. There don’t seem to have been any additional casualties. The accident results in the third traffic death in Flagler and the 28th overall this year, 11 more than in the previous year. The number of fatalities on Flagler roadways this year ranks fourth out of 22 years. Authorities anticipated that I-95 would be closed for a number of hours.
