Brevard County, FL – A tragic accident occurred on June 14, 2024, at approximately 1:43 PM on I-95 at Mile Marker 161, involving two vehicles and resulting in one fatality, according to the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP).

A 2012 Chevrolet Malibu, driven by a 33-year-old male from Lake Park, FL, was stopped in the inside southbound lane with its hazard lights activated. The vehicle was obstructing the lane when a 2021 Toyota Corolla, driven by a 29-year-old female from Melbourne, FL, approached from behind in the same lane.
