The Florida Highway Patrol says two parents from Leadwood, Missouri were killed in a crash Sunday afternoon in Volusia County. Their two children survived and were taken to Arnold Palmer Hospital, according to NBC affiliate WESH-TV.
WESH says the driver of a Ford Focus, Charles King, of New London, North Carolina, was driving eastbound on I-4. For unknown reasons, he drifted into the left-hand lane and hit a car, causing it to leave the interstate and hit a tree.
FHP says Greg Moyers and his wife Sarah Moyers, from Leadwood, Missouri died at the scene. Their two daughters, ages 8 and 13, were taken to the hospital.
WESH-TV says the 8 year-old is in critical condition. The 13 year-old is in serious condition. Charges are pending, according to FHP.
A family friend of the Moyers tells Local 6’s Robert Bradfield the family was on vacation in Orlando and was preparing to return to southeast Missouri Monday.
