QUINCY, Fla. — Two drivers are dead and a 3-year-old little girl is fighting for her life after a T-bone crash in Quincy Thursday evening.

The Florida Highway Patrol says the crash happened on U.S. 90 at Cleveland Street Thursday around 7:30 p.m.

They say Ruben Ayala, 36, of Kissimmee was driving his Honda Accord eastbound on U.S. 90 while Rosa Winbush, 50, of Quincy was traveling the opposite way on U.S. 90 at the same time.

At some point, Ayala's car crossed the centerline and began spinning out of control, the front of the car crashing into the side of Winbush's. Troopers say the crash caused Ayala's car to overturn into a nearby parking lot.

Both Ayala and Winbush were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. Winbush's passenger, a 3-year-old little girl, was transported to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital in serious condition.

Due to the crash, U.S. 90 was blocked for approximately four hours.

FHP says an investigation into the crash is ongoing. They say it is unknown if alcohol was a factor in the crash.

The Florida Highway Patrol was assisted on scene by Quincy Police Department, Gadsden County Sheriff's Office, Gadsden County EMS, Quincy Fire Department, Gretna Fire Department, Florida Department of Transportation, and the City of Quincy Police Department.

The Florida Highway Patrol is reporting a fatal accident in Quincy that has westbound lanes blocked on South Cleveland Street.

According to FHP, the accident occurred at the intersection of West Jefferson and South Cleveland Street in Quincy at about 8:07 p.m. Thursday.

FHP says westbound lanes are blocked from South Cleveland Street past Pizza Hut and are encouraging drivers to find an alternate route.
