Reckless Motorist Dies After Crashing Into Five Cars And A Semi


A reckless pickup truck driver has died after causing a seven vehicle crash in Orlando this afternoon.

The incident started around 1 p.m. when a concerned motorist began following a blue pickup truck driving recklessly on Semoran Boulevard near the Orlando International Airport.

When police arrived on the scene and located the truck, they said that the pickup crashed into five other passenger vehicles and then rear ended a Publix truck. The pickup came to a stop on its right side.

The motorist was pronounced dead at the scene.

Several other minor injuries were reported.

The northbound lanes of Semoran Boulevard are closed between the airport and TG Lee Boulevard for a vehicle homicide investigation. It is unclear when they will reopen.

This is a developing story that is still under investigation.
