Woman killed in test drive crash outside Florida car dealership

A 76-year-old passenger was killed when a vehicle test-driven by an 86-year-old man veered into the path of a car right outside a Florida car dealership.

The crash happened Saturday night in Winter Haven, which is about southwest of Orlando, Polk County Sheriff’s officials said in a news release.

Investigators said the man was identified by CBS affiliate WKMG as Clifford Worme — test driving a 2023 Nissan Rogue made a left turn in front of an oncoming vehicle as they backed into the parking lot.

First responders found Jean Worm dead at the scene, officials said. Clifford Worm suffered minor injuries. The sales representative from the car dealership, who went for a test drive, and the driver of the other car were not injured, the report said.

Everyone in both vehicles was wearing seat belts, the sheriff’s office said.

The investigation continues.
