Morrison was passenger in one of the vehicles.

Sergeant Hughes said the preliminary results of the investigation show that this was a rear end collision and speed may have been a factor. All of the involved parties were transported to local area hospitals for treatment.  

Due to size of the debris field, West Cocoa Beach Causeway was shut down with the assistance of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office while a crash investigation was conducted.  Once the initial investigation was completed the roadway was opened.

This is an active investigation and anyone that may have any additional information are asked to contact the Cocoa Beach Police Department at 321-868-3251.
