illiam Earl Carden, a 37-year-old resident of Palm Coast, formerly of Lake Worth, was killed early Saturday morning when his car overturned at the Palm Coast Parkway exit with I-95.
Alyce Whitman, a 63-year-old resident of Crescent City, was killed Friday afternoon in a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of County Road 304 and County Road 305 at the southwest end of Flagler County.
The year’s deadliest crash in Flagler County killed four people and injured several just after 2 p.m. in the northbound lanes of I-95.
Katie Stecker, 19, of St. Augustine, and Victoria Sutton, 20, were killed, Dalton Edwards, 20, of Bunnell, was critically burned, Alexander Koufodontis, 21, of Palm Coast, sustained lesser injuries.
A two-vehicle wreck at the northbound exit ramp of I-95 and State Road 100 ended with one of the two cars crashing into a retention pond and triggering a rescue of the driver by three Flagler County Sheriff’s deputies and four firefighters, who all dove into the 8-foot-deep waters.
Steven Zapata, 17, and Brian D. Rodrigues, 18, both of Palm Coast, were racing their BMWs up Belle Terre Parkway when Zapata lost control and ended up smashing an FPL light pole and a fence before dropping into a ditch.
The individual who triggered the 5-vehicle wreck ran off on foot, and the last driver to strike a car kept driving north as I-95 was shut down for over two hours early Saturday morning at the weigh scales in Palm Coast.
The wreck just before the Matanzas overpass caused the third fatality in three days on Flagler County roads.
