Titusville Woman Involved In Orange County Pedestrian Crash

ORANGE COUNTY, Florida -- The Florida Highway Patrol reported that two pedestrians are in critical condition after being struck near the intersection of State Road 436 and Century 21 Boulevard in east Orange County, Florida.

19-year-old Iesha Blake of Titusville, Florida, was driving a 1999 Ford 4-Door southbound on State Road 436 just after 6:30 p.m. on Thursday.  Meanwhile, a yet-to-be-identified adult Asian man along with an Asian girl approximately 8-10 years of age were attempting to cross SR 436 from the east to the west.  They had crossed the northbound lanes and were standing in the median.
