Breaking News Overnight: Two dead, two seriously injured after two-vehicle collision in Gilchrist County


Troopers from the Florida Highway Patrol responded to a two-vehicle collision in Gilchrist County last night that resulted in the death of a driver and passenger.

According to the FHP report, at approximately 11:43 pm, a sport utility vehicle driven by a 60-year-old Mastic, NY man was traveling south on State Road 19 approaching the Marion County Line.

At the same time, a van driven by a 21-year-old Hastings woman was traveling north on State Road 19, approximately 1 mile north of the Marion County line.

As they approached, the SUV attempted to pass/overtake another vehicle, as witnesses described. In doing so, the driver violated the van's right of way.

The left front of the SUV collided with the left front of the van, which caused the SUV to overturn and come to a final rest facing northwest. The van came to a final rest facing east on the eastern shoulder.

According to the FHP report, the SUV driver and a passenger (a 60-year-old Mastic, NY woman) suffered serious injuries. The van's driver and a passenger (an unidentified male) were pronounced deceased.

The FHP did not release the names of either driver in the crash.
