Two killed in horror Christmas Eve car crash as vehicle slams into hotel

Two people have been killed following a horror car crash that saw a vehicle slam into the side of a hotel.

The fatal incident took place in the early hours of Thursday morning in Kissimmee, Florida, USA, when a Kia carrying five passengers crashed into the side of the Golden Link Hotel.

Reports say the car’s driver, a 32-year-old man, suddenly drove across onto the oncoming lane before colliding with the hotel’s left side.

The vehicle first hit two metal poles and then crashed into a support column in the parking lot.

Two women, aged 31 and 18, were pronounced dead at the scene, while the driver along with two injured passengers were taken to hospital for treatment – with their condition and the extent of their injuries still unknown.

According to the police, charges against the driver of the car are pending, with the cause of the crash still under investigation.

According to Tim Wrobble, an employee of the Golden Link Hotel, this is not the first time a car has crashed into the hotel.

Wrobble told WFTV that in the early 2000s three people were killed in a similar crash.

Just a few years ago, a number of people were hurt when a car crashed into the hotel's pool, he added.

Wrobble called on local officials to erect fencing or a wall around the hotel to prevent similar incidents in the future.

In the meantime, he said his thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims.

He said: "It's Christmas season and these poor families that have to experience this – it's just heartbreaking."
