A 68-year-old Titusville man has lost his life from injuries sustained during a traffic accident last night (March 11, 2021) in Daytona Beach. 

Officers with the Daytona Beach Police Department (DBPD) responded to North Williamson Boulevard and Reliability Way after Volusia County emergency dispatchers received a call for help at 8:38 p.m. from a witness stating that two vehicles had collided with one another.

DBPD’s Traffic Homicide Unit arrived shortly afterward to process the scene.

Witnesses at the scene told investigators that a 1997 white and tan Chevrolet C1500 pickup truck – driven by the Titusville man – was heading eastbound on Reliability when the vehicle went through the posted stop sign without stopping, merging into the southbound lanes of Williamson.

As the Chevy truck was in the process of merging, the front of a 1999 white GMC Yukon approaching Reliability as it headed south on Williamson struck the driver’s side door of the C1500. 

The impact caused the C1500 to spin counterclockwise as it crossed through the southbound lanes and into the northbound lanes on Williamson before it flipped over, coming to rest on its passenger side.

First responders pulled the C1500 driver out of the vehicle and rushed him to Halifax Health Medical Center as a trauma alert. He was listed in critical and unstable condition before he passed away earlier today (March 12, 2020). 

The identity of the Chevy driver is not available at this time. DBPD is still attempting to contact his next of kin.

No one else was inside the C1500 at the time of the accident.

The Yukon driver – a 33-year-old Holly Hill man – was checked out on scene by medical personnel and reported no injuries. That man’s 10-year-old son – who was a passenger in the Yukon when the accident happened – was also looked at on scene by medical personnel and reported no injuries.

There are no criminal charges pending for this case. 

This is the second fatal accident reported during Bike Week 2021. A 52-year-old Ormond Beach woman died last Saturday in an accident involving a Daytona Beach Fire Department truck.
