• Multiple people killed in fiery Palm Coast crash


    PALM COAST, Fla. - The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal chain-reaction crash involving 11 vehicles on Interstate 95 southbound near mile marker 301 in St. Johns County.

    Investigators processed the scene of the fiery crash into the early hours of Sunday, in which I-95 southbound remained closed. All lanes reopened around 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

    Troopers said a truck driver lost control while heading northbound on I-95 at about 7:30 p.m. Saturday in Palm Coast. He hit the median and landed on another car.

    He died, as did his passenger, 17-year-old Michael Smith, who was thrown from the truck.

    The driver of another car, Pamela Thor, also died in the crash.  

    Troopers said right before the crash, traffic was being diverted from a previous fatal crash in St. John's County, when the truck driver drove in and was unable to stop in time.

    A fire started from the impact and engulfed numerous vehicles, troopers said.
