Daytona Beach, FL - A 37-year-old Pennsylvania man has passed away from his injuries following a 3-vehicle accident on I-95 near I-4 in Daytona Beach.
David Eisenhuth had to be freed from a box truck following that wreck Thursday afternoon and was airlifted to Halifax Medical Center from the scene, where he later died.
The Florida Highway Patrol says it all started around 2:15pm, when a 1998 Isuzu pickup truck driven by 33-year-old Skye Baldwin of Deltona was attempting to enter I-95 southbound from the I-4 eastbound on-ramp.
Baldwin told investigators her vehicle hydroplaned on the wet road and she lost control, causing the front left side of her truck to hit the right side of the box truck driven by 35-year-old Michael Chaffe of Pennsylvania as it was heading south on I-95. Eisenhuth was sitting in the front passenger seat of the box truck.
F.H.P. states that the box truck careened across all southbound lanes after it was hit and ran into a light pole, trapping Eisenhuth inside.
A third vehicle – a 2013 Lincoln driven by 21-year-old Jessica Martin of Port Orange – was struck by debris from the crash, but neither she nor Chaffe were hurt in the wreck.
Baldwin sustained minor injuries, according to the accident report.
F.H.P. says they’re still investigating the crash and charges are pending at this time.
