The woman and both children were removed from the vehicle and taken to a nearby hospital with injuries. We pray for their full recovery.
There were and will be traffic delays on southbound SR 417 at mile marker 6. It appears that since the accident at least one lane has reopened. However, you should still expect delays in the area for the next few hours.
The accident occurred closer to Universal Studios than Disney World. However, the crash took place on the route that is commonly used for travel to and from the Orlando International Airport. If you are headed to Disney World today or traveling back after vacation, we suggest finding an alternate route.
Our condolences go to the man’s family, and we hope that the other passengers fully recover from their injuries.
