ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. — Investigators think a veteran Altamonte Springs police officer is responsible for an accident early Sunday but they're not sure why his patrol car hit a Honda Civic, seriously injuring the driver and a passenger.
Florida Highway Patrol officials do not yet know where Master Police Officer Mark Maupin was headed or how fast he was driving when he reportedly lost control of his cruiser on Maitland Boulevard.
The Honda's driver, Jennifer Hernandez, 18, was listed in stable condition at Orlando Regional Medical Center on Tuesday and passenger Erskin Bell, 20, remained in critical condition at ORMC.
