Update: 2:12 p.m.: The driver in this crash, 17-year-old Zachary Hollenback, died this afternoon at Central Florida Regional Hospital in Sanford.


One teenager was killed and another was in critical condition Friday after a crash late Thursday night in Deltona.

The crash around 10:41 p.m. at Saxon Boulevard and Urbana Avenue took the life of 17-year-old Chester Turck (DOB 5/30/2001). He was the passenger in a 1992 Honda Prelude driven by 17-year-old Zachary Hollenback, who was later listed in critical condition at Central Florida Regional Hospital in Sanford.

The preliminary crash investigation indicates the Prelude was eastbound on Saxon at a high rate of speed and lost control, crossed into the westbound travel lanes and hit an oncoming Nissan Maxima.

The driver of the Maxima, 37-year-old Charleen Ortiz, was treated and released from Central Florida Regional Hospital, and her passenger, 13-year-old Michelle Valentin, was not injured.

There were no signs of impairment in the crash, and all occupants were wearing seatbelts.
