fatal crash involving fire truck 488 x 450 21-03956

A 52-year-old Ormond Beach woman is dead and five City of Daytona Beach fire fighters were hurt following a traffic crash near Halifax Health Medical Center (HHMC) on the first Saturday of Bike Week 2021 (March 6). 

Officers with the Daytona Beach Police Department (DBPD) were called to the scene at 5:19 p.m. by members of the Daytona Beach Fire Department (DBFD) who were inside the fire truck when it flipped over following impact with the other vehicle involved, a silver Pontiac. DBPD’s Traffic Homicide Unit arrived shortly afterward to process the scene for evidence.

Investigators believe the Pontiac was going around 80 miles per hour in the southbound lanes of North Clyde Morris Boulevard as it hit the tail end of the DBFD truck just before the intersection of West International Speedway Boulevard / U.S. 92, causing it to flip over.

The DBFD truck had left the parking lot of the West Marine store nearby and was struck by the Pontiac as it attempted to cross the southbound lanes of Clyde Morris in order to head north on Clyde Morris.

Paramedics took the driver of the Pontiac to HHMC, where she passed away from her injuries shortly after arrival. Officers have since notified the woman’s next of kin.

Five firefighters in the DBPD fire truck suffered minor injuries and were treated on scene.

No charges are expected.
