ORANGE COUNTY, FL. – According to a news report posted online at fox35orlando.com, an injury-causing vehicle accident was reported to have occurred on State Road 535 in Orange County, Florida. Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the wreck and reports that two vehicles were involved.*
The accident occurred in the early morning hours on an unknown stretch of State Road 535. No mile marker or cross street was named in the report to indicate the specific location of the accident.
