Orange County, FL - Early this morning, Florida Highway Patrol troopers responded to a fatal crash on Jones Avenue and Jewel Foliage Road. The accident occurred at approximately 5:36 A.M., resulting in the death of one individual.


Preliminary evidence indicates that a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado was traveling westbound on Jones Avenue, west of Jewel Foliage Road. Ahead of the Silverado, a 1985 Dump Truck was also traveling westbound on Jones Avenue. The driver of the Chevrolet Silverado failed to slow down or stop in time, leading to a collision where the front of the Silverado struck the rear of the Dump Truck.


The driver of the Chevrolet Silverado, an adult male whose identity has not yet been released, was transported to Advent Health Apopka Hospital but was pronounced deceased upon arrival. The driver of the Dump Truck, a 38-year-old male from Eustis, was not injured in the crash.


In response to the incident, a roadblock has been set up, restricting both directions of travel on Jones Avenue. Authorities are on-site managing the situation and ensuring the safety of other road users.


This crash is currently under active investigation as troopers work to gather more details about the circumstances leading up to the accident. Further information will be released to the media once available.


The community is advised to avoid the area and seek alternative routes while the investigation and road clearance are ongoing.
