Bunnell, Florida (February 18, 2018) – Two people were killed, and several others were injured in a three-vehicle crash that happened Friday evening at an intersection in Bunnell, the Florida Highway Patrol reported.
Authorities have identified the victims as Ralph Pellicer, 43, of Bunnell, and Jobe Podach, 35, of Holly Hill, who died in the crash. Two other victims, Cody Iglesias, 26, of Bunnell, and Jeniffer McFann, 48, of Crescent City, were hospitalized after the accident.
The collision took place at around 7:31 p.m. Friday, February 16 at the intersection of State Road 100 and County Road 35.
FHP reported that a Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck stopped in the westbound lane of S.R. 100 waiting to turn left just west of Palatka when it was rear-ended by a Hyundai Accent that failed to stop.
The pickup truck was pushed by the impact into the eastbound lane, where it was hit by an oncoming Chevrolet Silverado that could not stop in time.
After the initial crash, the Accent struck the guardrail, and the Silverado flipped onto the driver’s side and landed in a ditch.
Pellicer, who was driving the pickup truck, and Podach, who was Pellicer’s passenger, were ejected from their vehicle and died in the crash. Iglesias was the second passenger in the truck and was transported to Halifax Medical Center in Daytona for treatment of serious injuries.
McFann was driving the Accent and was taken to Halifax Medical Center with serious injuries.
The driver of the Silverado, only identified as an 18-year-old, sustained minor injuries. His passenger was transported to Halifax.
