FHP: 3 killed in wrong-way crash in Volusia County, FHP says; search underway for suspected driver

Three people were killed early Sunday morning in Volusia County after they were struck by a suspected wrong-way driver, who then drove away from the crash site, Florida Highway Patrol said.

FHP said the driver of a gray Toyota Tacoma was traveling the wrong way on State Route 44 in Deland, Florida, around 2:20 a.m. and crashed head-on with a Black Infinity Q50, killing three people inside.

After the crash, a Toyota Prius collided with the Tacoma. A fourth car, a Lexus ES, managed to avoid crashing into the other vehicles, but did drive through the debris, FHP said.

No one else was seriously injured, according to FHP.

A police K-9 tried to find the driver of the Tacoma, but was unable to find him or her, FHP said. 

Anyone with information about the crash or the whereabouts of the Tacoma are asked to contact FHP.
