CRAWFORDVILLE, Fl. (WTXL) - — One person is dead and two others are in critical condition after a car flipped over in Crawfordville.

Troopers said the crash happened at about 10:15pm Friday on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Road. Authorities said 20-year-old Trafton Shiver failed to make a turn and drifted off the roadway, crashing into an open tunnel.
