Daytona Beach Police Department is actively working on an investigation following a fatal accident that left one woman dead and another hurt.
Early Saturday, Daytona Beach Police Officers responded to an accident scene just after 1 a.m. where two Georgia women were struck by a vehicle as they attempted to cross South Atlantic Avenue on foot.
According to a release, Investigators believe a black 2017 Nissan Altima was heading north on A1A using the right-hand lane when the front end of the vehicle struck both women as they attempted to cross A1A, knocking them to the ground.
One of the women – a 48-year-old resident of Fairburn, GA – died on the scene. The other – a 44-year-old resident of Austell, GA – was transported from the scene by paramedics to Halifax Health Medical Center in critical condition.
The driver of the Altima was a 21-year-old Holly Hill resident. The male driver nor any of the three adult passengers – one female, two males – reported any injuries at the time of the accident.
All of the Altima passengers were Daytona Beach residents.
The Altima driver remained on scene and was cooperative with investigators. The vehicle was later towed from the scene by DBPD for evidence processing.
There are no pending charges, as the investigation is ongoing.
