Two Injured In Seminole County Crash

CHULUOTA, Florida -- An Orange County man suffered critical injuries and a Brevard County man suffered serious injuries following a vehicle crash that occurred at 7:30 a.m. today near Chuluota, Florida. 


23-year-old James Johnstone of Orlando was driving a 2010 Ford pickup truck eastbound on County Road 419 while 65-year-old Aurelio Cruz of Merritt Island was driving a 2002 Nissan van westbound.  


FHP troopers say that, for an unknown reason, the pickup truck left the roadway and struck a sign.  The driver then over-corrected and traveled into the westbound lanes.  The front of the pickup truck then struck the front of the van.


The pickup truck was carrying pool chemicals and a hazardous material unit was called to the scene to clean up the spilled chemicals.


Both men were transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center for treatment.  The van's passenger, 53-year-old Belinda Paris of Merritt Island, was also taken to ORMC, but did not suffer serious injuries.


FHP officials said that charges are pending.
