Driver Identified in Fatal Single-Vehicle Crash in Osceola


A 64-year-old Alachua man has been identified as the victim in a fatal crash last Friday on Florida Turnpike near mile marker 229.

Robert Beebe, who was driving a 2004 Chevy SUV, southbound on the inside lane of State Road 91 (Florida Turnpike), veered off the roadway onto the grass median, near milepost 229, south of the City of Ct. Cloud.

Beebe’s Chevy overturned multiple times before coming to rest on top of a guardrail facing west, troopers said.

Beebe was pronounced dead at the scene.

The accident occurred on Friday, August 5, just before 11:00 a.m.

It is unclear what caused Beebe to lose control, Florida Highway Patrol said.  He was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.

The crash remains under investigation.
