Fatal Accident in Orland 

Hancock County Sheriff’s deputies say 51-year-old Andrew Horchler died when the vehicles collided at the intersection of Rt. 1 and Schoolhouse Rd. around 11:30 a.m.

Deputies say 17-year-old Daniel Dodge of Brooksville was heading west on Rt. 1 in the center lane, while another driver was in the right hand lane.

Horchler was at the intersection getting ready to turn onto Rt. 1 when deputies say the car in the right hand lane blocked Horchler and Dodge’s view of each other.

When Horchler turned onto the road, Dodge’s truck slammed into the driver’s side of the car.

Dodge was not seriously hurt, Horchler was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 17-year-old passenger from Orland that was riding with Dodge was not seriously injured either.
