The following are media reports of this accident.
At the time, a 2000 white Toyota Pickup truck was traveling at high speed on the right lane northbound on I-75, it began hydroplaning when the driver tried to change lanes. The truck crossed the northbound lanes into the grass median and began to roll over.
The truck then collided with the front of the southbound 2013 Nissan traveling on the slow lane.
According to Florida’s highway patrol, the cab of the Toyota truck was split in half; For the silver Nisan Sedan, their first reaction is to remove the roof to rescue the passengers inside.
In this victimized sedan, sits four Chinese citizens related by blood. The driver Cong (Lisa) Ma, female, 30 years old, works in Massachusetts. She just moved from Lexington to a brand new house in Billerica only a month ago. Her beautiful life was about to start here!
Sun Xinyan, Lisa’s mother, from Shenyang, China, age 57, works in China Medical University in Shenyang. She came to the United States just two weeks ago to participate in the graduation ceremony of her nephew Haijiao.
Sun Xiaoguang, Lisa’s uncle, from Shenyang, China, age 55, he came to the United States just two weeks ago to attend his son Haijiao’s graduation.
Haijiao Sun, male, just graduated from Troy University, son of Xiaoguang, and only 26 years old. He prepared to return to China with his father and aunt on January 20. He has a set of new dreams and ambitions, ready to roll up his sleeves to make a big difference.
They just finished Haijiao’s graduation ceremony. In the driving, they could be talking about their promising future, or the naughty past of Leopard (Haijiao’s Chinese nick name). Or, it’s more likely they might have discussed what should be added to the new house Lisa just bought; They were on their way to Orlando, where they planned to spend a fun week vacationing, and then joined a tour group to travel the East Coast and the West Coast before returning to China.
Lisa’s mother and uncle died at the scene, Lisa and Haijiao were in the ICU-intensive care unit, their bodies covered with tubes, both have not regained consciousness at that time.
