The Florida Highway Patrol is still investigating the accident, but they and the Orlando Sentinel report the following details.
The accident occurred just outside Apopka in Orange County.
The FHP states that 23-year-old Clemon Jones of Lake Wales was driving north-bound on Plymouth Sorrento Road when he ran a red light at the intersection of Kelly Park Road, violently colliding into Mary Nell Shay’s car, a Pontiac Grand Prix.
