CRASH HAPPENED AFTER VISIT TO SPACE CENTER
BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – Four people from the same family visiting the Space Coast from Bristol, England died after a violent collision between a pickup truck and sedan on State Road 405 at Sisson Road just after 6 p.m. on Monday, April 2.
Titusville Police Public Information Officer Amy Matthews identified the victims as Adam P. Stephenson, 30; Maryanne Stephenson, 29; Brian Stephenson, 66; and Sheralyn T. Stephenson, 56 – all from Bristol, England.
According to Matthews, the preliminary investigation revealed that a white Mitsubishi sedan driven by Adam Stephenson was traveling west on State Road 405 and made a left turn at the intersection of Sisson Road, and into the path of an eastbound black Ford F-250 pickup truck.
“The heavy-duty truck violently impacted the passenger side of the small sedan,” said Matthews in a release,
The driver of the Ford pick up truck, James D. Walsh II, 28, of Port St. John, was transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
Investigators believe the Stephenson family had just left the Kennedy Space Center in their rental vehicle and were attempting to navigate back to their rental house in Davenport at the time of the crash.
GPS in the vehicle was instructing a “U-turn” at the intersection, most likely because of an earlier crash with road blockage on State Road 407, which was the original GPS route from the Space Center for their trip back to Davenport.
This crash remains under investigation by the Titusville Police Department.
