DAYTONA, FL. – According to an online news story reported at news-journalonline.com, a man and a woman were killed in a single-vehicle crash in Daytona, Florida.

The Daytona Beach Police Department received a call about a vehicle crash at approximately 7:20 a.m. on April 10. They responded to the scene of the wreck at North Tomoka Farms Road, near West International Speedway Boulevard, and found that a car had somehow traveled off the road and hit a tree.
Daytona Beach Police Deputy Chief Jakari Young said that officers concluded the car had been traveling at a high rate of speed when it left the roadway. It then hit an uneven shoulder, which caused the vehicle to become airborne and roll over. The vehicle hit a fence and a tree before coming to a stop.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal and police report that the two occupants in the vehicle were partially ejected during the collision, and both died at the scene. They were identified as a 42-year-old man and a 46-year-old woman, both from Daytona Beach. Neither was wearing a seat belt, police said.
Police officers found the vehicle with dew on it, making them believe that it had been sitting for several hours before they arrived.
