FHP: 2 dead, 1 injured after Orange County crash


The Orange County Sheriff's Office said there was a deadly crash on Thursday morning.


Around 5:44 a.m., the crash happened at the Florida Turnpike near mile marker 266.


The vehicle hit a driver of a tow truck who was standing behind his truck tractor.


The 53-year-old man driving the pickup truck and the 42-year-old tow truck driver were both pronounced dead at the scene.


A passenger who was in the pickup truck was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to the FHP.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.




Johnsons Wrecker Service released this statement:


With the deepest respect for the family’s privacy we did not post any information on the incident that occurred yesterday.


It is with heavy hearts and deep sadness we inform you that a member of our team, Paul Paez, was fatally struck yesterday on the Turnpike. We are devastated.


Please keep his family, loved ones, and the JWS Team in your thoughts and prayers.


Thank you to everyone that has reached out. We will be posting updates at the family’s discretion. A light up processional will be planned for his services.
