One person was killed, and another injured, in a two-vehicle crash in Osceola County early Thursday morning.

At around 1:25 a.m., a 60-year-old man from Kissimmee was traveling eastbound on Oakwood Drive, near the intersection of Buenaventura Boulevard, in a 2013 Toyota Prius, according to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol.

FHP stated that at the same time, a 33-year-old Kissimmee man was heading southbound on Buenaventura Boulevard in a 2011 Nissan Rogue.

A trooper noted in the report that when the Toyota Prius (sedan) reached the intersection, the driver attempted to make a left turn onto Buenaventura Boulevard. The vehicle proceeded to travel directly into the path of the Nissan Rogue (SUV), resulting in a collision.
