Lake Wales Man, 24, Killed In Scenic Hwy Crash

The crash occurred in Lake Wales just after 10:00 a.m. on North Scenic Hwy near Egg Farm Road. Witnesses and evidence indicate that 24-year-old Angel Velasquez Jeronimo of Lake Wales was traveling south on Scenic Hwy in a silver 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier when, for unknown reasons, he entered into the northbound lane while negotiating a curve. The Cavalier struck a blue 2019 Kia Sorrento being driven north by 82-year-old Ralph Riedel of Lake Wales with his wife, 82-year-old Judith, in the front passenger seat. Jeronimo suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene. The Riedels were both transported to local hospitals. Judith has critical injuries but is stable. Ralph was expected to be treated and released on Sunday with minor injuries.

 

The investigation is ongoing but no charges are pending. The roadway was shut down for several hours
