DeLand, FL – A young mother and her five-month-old daughter are dead after an accident in the eastbound lanes of I-4 around 10 p.m. Friday night. Florida Highway Patrol officers report that the SUV driven by 20-year-old Cayman Hupp, of Venice, Florida, rear-ended a SUV driven by 27-year-old Henry Vila Cosme near Orange Camp Road.
FHP said the collision caused Cosme’s vehicle to roll several times, ejecting 22-year-old Ruth Tosada-Bonilla and 5-month old Anjerymar Villa-Tosada from the SUV. FHP’s report shows that neither Cosme or Tosada-Bonilla were wearing seat belts. The baby was not in a child restraint.
The report also shows that alcohol was not a factor. The crash remains under investigation.
