Seminole Co.-  Five of the 15 holiday related deaths happened in one wreck in Seminole County, and it's not the first time someone ran the stop sign at River Road and Highway 91 with fatal consequences. 

On Friday night, Mike Blanchard, General Manager of Fairway Toyota in Albany, was driving his R.V. on River Road.  Investigators say he a stop sign and hit a Ford Explorer.  The four people inside that SUV, 46 year old Joseph Cone, his wife Madeline, 4 year old daughter and 5 year old son were all killed.  Blanchard also died. 

State troopers say back in March, a woman was killed when her car was struck by a driver who also ran the stop sign. 

Despite both fatal crashes, the GSP said the intersection is not considered dangerous.
