A 19-year-old woman is dead, and another 19-year-old woman was critically injured following a three-vehicle crash Monday night in Volusia County.

The crash took place at around 6 p.m. on State Road 46 and Morgan Alderman Road, said the Florida Highway Patrol’s Lt. Kim Montes.

A 28-year-old man, of Sebastian, was driving a van east on SR-46 while a sedan transporting the two 19-year-old women was heading west on SR-46, Montes said.

As the van approached Morgan Alderman Road, the Sebastian man lost control of the vehicle and entered the SR-46 1/4 u2032s westbound lanes, Montes said. The van struck the sedan head on.

The rear of the van than struck a third vehicle, an SUV driven by a 52-year-old woman, of Geveva.

The driver of the sedan, of Cocoa, was pronounced dead at the scene, Montes said. The FHP incident report listed the driver as not wearing a seatbelt. The other woman, of Allisonia, Virginia, was listed in critical condition and was taken to the hospital.

The van driver had minor injuries, and the SUV driver was unharmed.

The crash remains under investigation.
