A young Islamorada woman died two days after her car collided head-on with a truck at mile marker 86 on U.S. 1 Monday night.
The driver, Maggie Fenney, 22, was flown by helicopter air ambulance to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami around 8 p.m. She died Tuesday, said Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Kathleen McKinney. Her death marks the 12th road fatality in Monroe County since January.
Fenney’s 2011 Audi A4 was traveling northbound when it crossed the center line into the southbound path of a 2006 International truck driven by Marcelino Resendiz-Gines, 49, of Florida City.
The impact forced Gines’ truck into the path of a northbound 2008 Toyota Highland driven by Roselin Coxey, 57, of Englewood, Fla. Both vehicles struck each other in the front, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. A 2004 Ford Focus driven by Luis Gimeranes Perez, 42, of Miami, was also driving northbound behind Fenney’s car and was struck by debris from all the vehicles in the wreck.
Gines suffered minor injuries, but was not taken to the hospital. Coxey and her two passengers were taken to Mariners Hospital in Tavernier for treatment of minor injuries.
