Titusville Man Killed In Crash On Columbia Boulevard

TITUSVILLE, Florida - A 27-year-old Titusville man has died as a result of injuries he sustained in a crash that occurred on US-1 just north of Columbia Boulevard (State Road 405).

The man was driving a 2008 Honda Civic southbound on US-1 while approaching the southbound exit ramp to Columbia Boulevard around 1 a.m. on Monday, February 1, 2017.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the driver failed to negotiate the curve as the Honda entered onto the exit ramp. The Honda then traveled off the paved portion of the roadway and onto a grassy shoulder before finally striking a tree. The Honda was torn apart and the driver was ejected by the force of the impact.

The driver's identity has not been released pending next-of-kin notification.

The crash remains under investigation.

Florida Institute of Technology Warns Students Not To Fly Internationally

MELBOURNE, Florida - The Florida Institute of Technology has issued an advisory warning students to not fly internationally following an Executive Order signed by President Donald J. Trump on Friday titled "Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States" which temporarily bans entry of foreign nationals from seven countries that are linked to terrorism.

"I am aware that there are questions and concerns related to President Trump's recent executive order concerning immigration, wrote FIT President, T. Dwayne McCay. "Indeed, the university administration is monitoring this unfolding situation very closely, and will communicate with and support any affected members of our campus community as needed. At the moment, we all have more questions than answers."

" ... We are a university that embraces diversity and strives to prepare students for global citizenship. This has been fundamental to our mission dating to the earliest days of this school," McCay continued. "We have only enhanced and strengthened this commitment since then, rising now to be recognized as the most internationally diverse undergraduate population of any university in the United States."

The travel ban affects foreign nationals from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen.

Just last year, a former international student who attended FIT was sentenced to 18 months in federal prison for possession of a firearm and ammunition by an unlawful alien. However, that student, Hamid Mohamed Ahmed Ali Rehaif, was a United Arab Emirates national - a country that is not on the travel ban list.

According to evidence presented at trial, Rehaif was admitted into the United States in 2013 under a student visa in order to attend FIT. After completing three semesters, he was academically dismissed in December 2014.  As a result, Rehaif became an unlawful alien when he failed to immediately depart the United States.

Following an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, law enforcement agents made contact with Rehaif at a hotel in Melbourne where federal officials say he had been living for two months, paying more than $11,000 in cash for room fees.

During that time, Rehaif possessed firearms and ammunition at a local shooting range in Melbourne, Florida. In addition, he provided ammunition to two hotel employees as “gifts.” At the sentencing hearing, the Court found that Rehaif had illegally purchased three other firearms.
