Florida Keys Fatal Crash

Florida Highway patrol is investigating a head-on crash that killed both drivers. It happened at mile marker marker 102 along US-1 in Key Largo Sunday evening. 79-year-old Ralph Sheffler was driving his van south while Maria Esteves, of Miami, was driving a north when, for unknown reasons, Sheffler crossed the center line of US-1 and crashed head-on into Esteves’ car. She died at the scene. Sheffler was flown to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami, where he later died. The Florida Keys are beautiful this time of year, but many stretches of the scenic drive south are single lanes. For this reason, it’s crucial to stay alert and undistracted by the scenery while driving in the Keys.
