INDIALANTIC, Florida -- A 59-year-old Indialantic woman has died as a result of injuries she sustained in a vehicle crash that occurred just before 1 p.m. on Saturday in Indialantic.

According to FHP reports, Nancy Chancey was driving a 2010 Dodge Charger at a high rate of speed northbound on State Road A1A in the outside lane.  Meanwhile, a 1996 Volvo driven by 57-year-old Deborah Cook of Maryland was also traveling northbound ahead of the Charger.

As the Charger approached the Volvo, Chancey attempted to change into the inside northbound lane.  The front, right of the Charger then struck the left, rear of the Volvo.  The Charger then left the roadway, struck a culvert, and became airborne while overturning. 
Chancey, who was not wearing her seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle.  The Charger then struck a telephone pole, a wall, a gate, and caught fire.   Chancey was transported to the Brevard County Medical Examiner's Office.  Cook suffered no injuries.
