Rescued driver Raymond Michael Jandoli, 57, of Orlando was being treated in the intensive-care unit at Central Florida Regional Hospital in Sanford and is expected to survive, Volusia County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Andrew Gant said Monday.
Concerned citizens helped Jandoli escape from his burning 2017 Volkswagen SUV after the crash, Gant said.
The other driver, Dylan Deggeller, 18, of DeLand was also taken to the Sanford hospital, sustaining non-life-threatening injuries, Gant said.
Deputies were called to the crash at U.S. Highway 17-92 (also called Charles R. Beall Boulevard) and Glen Forest Boulevard at about 9 p.m.
“The initial investigation revealed a blue 2017 Volkswagen SUV pulled out from Glen Forest into the path of a white 2012 Jeep SUV traveling south on Charles R. Beall,” Gant said in a statement. “The Volkswagen SUV was fully engulfed in flames when deputies arrived.”
The Orange City Fire Department, which provides fire services in DeBary, also responded.
The crash happened near the entrance to the Reserve subdivision. No additional information was immediately available.
