Winter Haven, Florida Man Survives Crash That Split Car in Two

A Winter Haven man has survived a horrific crash that split his vehicle in two after he slid off the roadway hitting a tree.

Around 6:48 p.m. on Tuesday, 20 year-old Carlos Pino was driving west along Cypress Gardens Blvd at the curves near Interlochen Blvd. when he lost control of his silver 1986 Nissan 300ZX.

Pino was headed westbound when he started to slide on the wet roadways as he negotiated the curve. Pino over-corrected, lost control of the vehicle and started to skid sideways. Ultimately, the vehicle struck a curb and left the roadway.

The vehicle continued traveling onto the shoulder where it impacted a tree with the driver’s side front wheel and quarter panel. The impact of the crash caused the vehicle to split in two with the front engine compartment on one side of the tree and the vehicle’s cab with Pino buckled in coming to a rest on the opposite side of the tree. There were no other vehicles involved in the crash.

Pino, who was wearing his seat belt, was airlifted to Lakeland Regional Health with non-life threatening injuries. The wet roadway and speed appear to be a factor in the crash.

An investigation is ongoing and charges are pending.
