Fatal accidents marred spring break festivities in Florida, where thousands of vacationing students created peak crowds over the Easter weekend. In Daytona Beach, a single-engine plane towing an advertising banner plunged into the ocean just 150 feet offshore from the crowded beach, killing the pilot. In Eatonville, two pedestrians were killed by a speeding car that fled the scene. Earlier in the week, a 22-year-old Burbank, Ill., man, whom police said was not a student, fell to his death from a Daytona Beach hotel balcony while trying to catch a Frisbee.
