DAYTONA BEACH(CBSMiami/AP) — A suspected carjacker going the wrong way on I-95 in central Florida while fleeing from police slammed head-on into another vehicle.
The man had been involved in a carjacking earlier Tuesday in Orange County, and was fleeing from sheriff’s deputies on northbound I-95, said the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.
The man turned into the southbound lanes, heading against traffic with his headlights off, sheriff’s officials said.
Sheriff’s deputies tried to stop the oncoming traffic, but the man’s car crashed into another vehicle.
