According to the Florida Today newspaper, a 39 year old man was killed following a car accident in the early morning hours of Monday, October 24, 2011 on State Road 50 in Titusville, Florida. The 39 year old Orlando man, operating a 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse, was reportedly traveling eastbound in the westbound lanes when he collided head-on with a tractor trailer. The 39 year old man was transported to Parrish Medical Center in Titusville, Florida where he died a short time later. The driver of the tractor trailer did not sustain any injuries.

The fatal crash occurred at about 4:45 a.m. near the intersection of State Road 50 (Cheney Highway) and Hacienda Drive about 3 miles west of I-95.
