ORMOND BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Florida authorities have identified two North Carolina residents who were killed in a crash on Interstate 95.
Florida High Patrol says Leah Law of Asheville, N.C., and George Jarosv died Sunday after their car crashed on northbound I-95 in Volusia County. Jarosv’s hometown in North Carolina was not released.
Authorities say that witnesses reported seeing Jarosv driving aggressively as his car approached a tractor-trailer that was also driving north.
According to FHP, the tractor-trailer’s driver pulled over to the highway’s shoulder to get out of Jarosv’s way. Troopers say that Jarosv’s car rear-ended the tractor-trailer as the truck was coming to a stop.
Jarosv and Law were pronounced dead at the scene. FHP says the crash remains under investigation.
