Sanford man ejected from car, dies in crash with tow truck (FL)


Recommended Posts


A 21-year-old man was ejected from a vehicle and died after colliding with a tow truck in a crash Sunday night in Seminole County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.


Michael Freeman, 21, of Sanford, and Brandon Robbins, 27, of Orlando, were driving in a 1999 Subaru at 6:40 p.m. east on Ronald Reagan Boulevard and near the State Road 417 entrance intersection, said FHP spokesperson Lt. Kim Montes.


It is unclear which of the men was driving, Montes said.

The Subaru traveled through a red light at the intersection, while a tow truck proceeded through a green light from the S.R. 417 exit, Montes said.


The Subaru hit the left side of the truck causing the Subaru to overturn and eject Freeman, Montes said.

Freeman and Robbins were both transported to the Central Florida Regional Hospital with serious injuries, but Freeman was later pronounced dead, Montes said.


The tow-truck driver, 54-year-old Jimmy Resto Ocasio, suffered minor injuries, Montes said.

An investigation is ongoing.
