6 hurt after car crashes head-on into another vehicle at Deltona intersection: deputies

Six people were injured following a head-on crash in Volusia County early Monday, deputies said. 

The Volusia County Sheriff's Office said the crash happened shortly before 3 a.m. at the intersection of Evard Avenue and Elkcam Boulevard in Deltona.

Authorities said a red Toyota sedan was traveling at a high rate of speed on Elkcam Boulevard when it crossed into the oncoming lane, striking a white Acura head-on. 


Four people traveling in the Toyota – all 21 years old – and two people from the Acura, ages 51 and 36, were taken to local hospitals for treatment. The extent of their injuries is unknown.  

A neighbor woke up this morning to see the crash scene in her front yard.

"When I looked at that car and saw the degree of the crash between the two, actually, I said, somebody is gone," she told FOX 35 News. "If they survive, oh, they've definitely got some angels or something because that was just unbelievable."

The crash remains under investigation.
