2-car crash on County Road 150 kills 1, seriously injures 3

Many accidents in Florida happen on curves in the road. Speeding drivers may stray over the centerline and fail to stay in their lane as they go through a curve. Distracted or impaired drivers may not make the curve at all since they may not be paying attention to the fact that the road is curving. Whatever the reason may be, when a vehicle veers into the oncoming lane of traffic in a curve, it can crash into a vehicle in the opposing lane of travel.

The Florida Highway Patrol recently responded to the scene of an accident involving two vehicles. A pickup truck driven by a 28-year-old man drifted over the centerline through a curve along County Road 150, and then slammed into an oncoming car. When troopers arrived, they discovered three survivors and one deceased victim.

A 77-year-old woman -- a passenger in the car that was struck -- died in the crash. The car driver suffered serious injuries and was taken to Madison County Hospital. The driver of the pickup truck also suffered serious injuries and was transported to South Georgia Medical Center. At last report, both drivers remained in serious condition. A 5-year-old was in the pickup, and her condition was still serious at last report.

Criminal charges against the driver of the pickup are pending. The outcome of any criminal proceedings related to the crash is separate from any civil actions that may be filed. If a civil court determines that the driver of the pickup truck was the cause of the injuries -- serious or fatal -- suffered by the victims, an award of damages could be forthcoming.
