BREVARD COUNTY • MIMS, FLORIDA – The driver of a 2006 Porsche Cayenne was killed last night about 11:35 p.m. in the northbound lanes of I-95 near Mims, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The driver, a 38-year old man, has not been identified pending notification of next of kin.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the driver failed to negotiate a right sweeping curve and traveled into the median.
The front left side of the car then struck the guardrail, and it appears that the driver then attempted to steer the vehicle away from the guardrail, and back onto the roadway.
The driver over corrected and his vehicle traveled north across both lanes and onto the east shoulder. The car then traveled onto the dirt and grassy shoulder, and the front left side of the car struck a palm tree causing it to overturn. The car’s left front side then struck a large oak tree, then a second palm tree and then struck a fourth tree. The driver was ejected from the Porsche sometime between striking the first tree and the second set of trees.
He was not wearing a seatbelt, according to the Florida Highway Patrol report.
This crash remains under investigation.
