SATELLITE BEACH --
Friends gathered Sunday night at the site of a wreck along state Road A1A where a teen was killed and another was seriously injured. Police say 16-year-old Darren Devoe was pronounced dead at the scene. He was the passenger in a green 1993 Toyota that crashed at the intersection of A1A and Scorpion Court at 6:40 a.m. Sunday.
The driver, 17-year-old Jason Dupree, was taken to Holmes Regional Medical Center with serious injuries. Devoe was just a few days shy of his 17th birthday. Loved ones left flowers and even boxing gloves, and signed their names on a concrete utility pole at the intersection of A1A and Scorpion Court. . . .
Police cautioned all drivers to be careful along that section of the highway. Just 40 yards south of Sunday's accident, two Satellite Beach police officers were killed in a 1992 crash
