British family of four are killed in a horror crash while on holiday in Florida 

A British family of four has been killed in a horror crash while on holiday in Florida.

Adam Stephenson, 30, had made a U-turn in a rented Mitsubishi saloon car as the family left the Kennedy Space Center, local media has reported.

Mr Stephenson’s wife Maryanne, 29, and his parents Brian Stephenson, 66, and Sheralyn T. Stephenson, 56, also died after they were hit by a Ford F-250 pickup truck.

The family, from Bristol, was pronounced dead at the scene in Sisson Road on the SR-405 intersection in Titusville, Florida.

It has been described as a “violent collision” by Titusville Police Department which says the crash is still under investigation.

The large pickup truck collided with the passenger side of the small saloon car.

GPS in the vehicle was instructing a “U-turn” at the intersection likely due to a road blockage on SR 407 – the original route from the Space Center back to Davenport where the family were staying.

This crash remains under investigation by the Titusville Police Department.
