Polk County Sheriff’s Office Investigating Fatal Crash In Northeast Polk

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate a two-vehicle crash that occurred Wednesday morning, March 27, 2024 in Poinciana.

PCSO deputies were dispatched at about 6:12 AM to the intersection of Cypress Parkway and Lake Marion Creek Road, along with members from Polk County Fire Rescue.

Upon the arrival of first responders, one of the drivers, 42-year old Vilmarie Munet of Kissimmee, was found deceased in her vehicle.

The driver of a second vehicle, 54-year old Jose Cirilo Martinez-Hernandez of Haines City, suffered serious, but non-life threatening injuries. He was transported by ambulance to an area hospital.

PCSO Traffic Homicide detectives and Forensic Investigators collected evidence and witness statements.

Ms. Munet had been driving a gray 2013 Toyota Camry west on Cypress Parkway, and Mr. Martinez-Hernandez was driving a gray 2011 Toyota Camry eastbound.

The preliminary investigation indicates that Ms. Munet’s Camry crossed the center line, into the eastbound lane. Mr. Martinez-Hernandez attempted to swerve to avoid the crash, but the two vehicles collided. 

Neither driver was wearing a seat belt.

Cypress Parkway was closed for about four hours.
