Deltona, FL (March 11, 2019) - A crash outside of Pine Ridge High School left one person dead and five others injured on Monday, March 11th.
Deputies with the Volusia County Sheriff's Office were called to the scene in response to a two-car crash. Officers say that a 15-year-old boy was driving a car eastbound on Howland Boulevard when he turned in front of an SUV, which was carrying five people at the time, traveling westbound. The SUV and car collided with one another, resulting in the tragic death of the 15-year-old. Five people in the SUV were treated for injuries that were not life-threatening.
