POINCIANA, Fla. - A woman and three children were killed in a crash Sunday evening after a teenager sped through a stop sign in Osceola County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Troopers said the crash happened shortly before 7 p.m. at San Miguel Street and Laurel Avenue in Poinciana.
A 15-year-old boy from Kissimmee was driving a 2012 Chevy Impala northbound on Laurel Avenue at a high rate of speed when officials said he failed to stop at a stop sign, crashing into the side of a 2022 Honda HR-V.
The collision caused the Honda to spin, and ultimately it slammed into a light pole, FHP said.
