1 dead after SunRail train collides with vehicle between Lake Mary, Sanford stations
LAKE MARY, Fla. - Traffic along Lake Mary Blvd. was backed up for several hours while authorities responded to an incident near the railroad tracks just east of Old Lake Mary Rd. Lake Mary Blvd. was closed in both directions after a SunRail train collided with a Ford F-150 pickup truck, troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) said. The driver of the truck was pronounced deceased at the scene.
SunRail said the P322 northbound and P329 southbound trains were delayed due to police activity while the P332 northbound train was canceled. The tracks between the Lake Mary and Sanford stations are closed, and a bus bridge is being implemented, SunRail said.
The FHP is heading the investigation into what led to the crash and a spokesperson with Seminole County Fire Rescue confirms to FOX 35 News that a patient with "no vitals" was discovered at the scene.
