Speeding Camaro Slams into Palm Bay Home and Kills both Passengers

July 12, 2011

In what must have looked like a scene from a movie, an out-of-control Chevy Camaro crashed into a home and burst into flames in Palm Bay last month. Both of the women in the vehicle died in the car crash. No one inside the home suffered injuries in the collision.

In a report in floridatoday.com, the deadly vehicle accident occurred around 3:40 a.m. on Nevada Drive. The Camaro was traveling at an estimated speed of 70 mph in a 30 mph zone, according to investigators. The vehicle veered from the road, went airborne, struck a tree and then plowed into the home’s garage before bursting into a ball of flames.

The impact threw one of the women from the car and pinned her underneath the wrecked vehicle. The other woman remained stuck in the burning car. A Palm Bay Police Department spokesperson said it was a driver-involved crash and speed was a likely factor in the accident. Investigators are also awaiting the results of toxicology tests. The investigation is ongoing.

The impact severely damaged the home’s garage. The accident marks the second time a car crashed into a Palm Bay home in as many days.
