WAUKEENAH, Fla. (WTXL) — Two people are in serious condition after a car accident in Jefferson County Wednesday morning.

At about 9:23 a.m. a driver and passenger were driving west on U.S. Highway 27 towards Tallahassee when they approached the County Road 259 intersection, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report.

As they approached the one-light intersection in the unincorporated town of Wauneekah, a second driver coming from the southern part of the intersection crossed the first set of lanes and tried turning into the westbound lanes.

The second vehicle collided with the car carrying two people, the report said.

The car that turned into the westbound lanes then spun around, finally landing facing west.

The second car going westbound originally went onto the shoulder and came to a final rest in the median.

The driver of the second vehicle did not suffer any injuries according to the report.

FHP was assisted by the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office and Jefferson County Fire Rescue.
