A 47-year-old woman visiting Orlando from the United Kingdom with her husband and son was killed in a fatal accident along Orange Blossom Trail this afternoon.

The accident took place around 1 p.m. today near the intersection of Orange Blossom Trail and Osceola Polk Line Road. The woman, who was from Horten Heath in Hampshire, England, was riding as a passenger with her 13-year-old son in a 2022 Mitsubishi Mirage being driven by her 53-year-old husband.

According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, the family was traveling northbound on Orange Blossom Trail when they attempted to make a left turn to travel west on Osceola Polk Line Road.
