Ormond man killed on State Road 40

William Snow, 46, of Ormond Beach, was killed about 11:40 p.m. on State Road 40 near Airport Road on April 18 when his car overturned. An Ormond Beach woman in another car was not injured. The crash is still under investigation by the Highway Patrol.

The report states that Snow was driving a 1984 Volkswagen westbound when he lost control for an unknown reason and crossed into the median. The car overturned onto its roof in the eastbound lanes.

A few minutes later, Tina Meyer, 41, of Ormond Beach, was driving a 2008 Ford Fusion eastbound. The front of her car struck the left side of the Volkswagen. She was not injured.

Snow was not wearing a seatbelt, according to the report.

Motorcycle wreck takes life

Ormond Beach Police are investigating a fatal motorcycle crash that occurred at approximately 1:38 a.m. on April 18. The identity of the driver was not available at press time because next of kin had not been identified.

The motorcycle was northbound on U.S. 1 and apparently left the roadway north of Hernandez Avenue, according to the police report. It went over the sidewalk and into the parking lot of the Pirana Grill, where it struck a parked car. The operator of the motorcycle was pronounced dead on the scene by EVAC paramedics.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Ormond Beach Police at 677-0731. Anyone who wishes to remain anonymous can call Crimestoppers at 277-TIPS or toll-free at 1-888-277-TIPS.
