A 20-year-old woman is dead and two other people were seriously injured in a crash in Maitland that shut down the I-4 eastbound lanes for about four hours.

This happened at mile marker 90 early Saturday morning.

According to Florida Highway Patrol, a 26-year-old Orlando man was traveling eastbound on I-4. Two women – both 20-years-old – were parked on the shoulder due to a flat tire. FHP said the women were standing near the rear of the vehicle when for an unknown reason, the man ran off the roadway and hit the parked car from behind. 

He was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. One of the women was also transported with serious injuries. 

The other woman – who is from Daytona Beach – was transported but later pronounced dead.
