They had been riding in a silver 2010 Hyundai sedan driven by 31-year-old David Andrew Peco, who lives at the Oakleaf Apartment Homes on County Road 466 in Lady Lake. His vehicle rear-ended a silver 2019 Kia SUV driven by 31-year-old Alexander Christian Hyman of Winter Park which had been stopped in traffic. The force of that collision pushed Hyman’s vehicle into the rear of a blue 2021 Honda SUV driven by 72-year-old Rebecca Jane Bewersdorf of The Villages. She had also been stopped in traffic.

The airbag in Peco’s vehicle deployed upon impact.
