The fatal accident took place around 8:50 p.m. on Saturday, April 23. According to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol, a 37-year-old woman from Greencastle, Indiana, was attempting to cross International Drive at Sand Lake Road from west to east.

A 2001 Honda Civic being driven by a 19-year-old Orlando man was driving northbound on International Drive and traveled through the intersection on a green light, according to FHP. The woman failed to yield to the vehicle and the front of the Honda struck her.
