Clermont, FL – Fatal Head-On Crash on Schofield Rd Leaves One Dead, One Critically Injured

Clermont, FL (May 8, 2024) – A devastating head-on collision early Wednesday, May 8, in Lake County claimed the life of a 52-year-old Clermont man and left a 39-year-old Orlando man critically injured. The incident occurred around 6:30 a.m. on Schofield Rd, just west of Five Mile Rd. According to the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP), the Clermont man was driving a 2018 Nissan Maxima eastward and veered across the double-yellow line into an oncoming 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The violent impact caused both vehicles to overturn multiple times. The Clermont man was declared dead at the scene, while the Orlando man was airlifted in critical condition to Orlando Regional Medical Center. Both individuals were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash, the FHP confirmed.

Investigations into the cause of the accident are ongoing.
