Florida

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The Florida Highway Patrol says three people were killed when a suspected carjacker fleeing from police drove the wrong way onto Interstate 95 and collided with another vehicle.

Authorities say two other people were injured in crash around 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Volusia County Sheriff’s officials say the man had been involved in a carjacking earlier Tuesday in Orange County.

They say he was fleeing from sheriff’s deputies on northbound I-95. He suddenly turned into the southbound lanes, going against traffic with his headlights off.

Deputies tried to stop oncoming traffic, but he collided head-on with an oncoming car.
