No Charges Against Driver Who Hit Beachgoers In NSB

New Smyrna Beach, FL – The elderly man behind the wheel of a vehicle which struck two beachgoers on the sands of New Smyrna Beach last week won’t face charges for that crash but will have to re-take his driver’s license exam.

78-year-old Marvin K. Shurtliff’s vehicle also hit a stroller and two tents along with a 42-year-old woman from Canada and a 38-year-old man from Oviedo, according to the crash report provided by Volusia County Beach Safety.

VCBS officals believe Shurtliff – a Mount Dora resident – had a medical episode when driving his Chevrolet Monte Carlo southbound on the beach near Esther Street Park around 1:10 p.m. on July 5th. That’s the main reason he wasn’t charged, per the report.

Both victims went to Halifax Health Medical Center after the crash with non life-threatening injuries, but Shurliff declined medical treatment at the scene.

Around $2,000 in damage was done to the tents and Shurliff’s vehicle, according to the report.
