SUWANNEE COUNTY, Fla. — A 85-year-old man is dead and two others have been hospitalized with life-threatening injuries after a T-bone crash in Live Oak.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the accident happened around 7:27 a.m. Thursday at the intersection of County Road 49 and State Road 247 in O'Brien.
They say a blue GMC pickup truck was traveling south on CR-49 and was about to go through the intersection when the pickup got in the path of a Ford F-150 that was going the opposite way on SR-247.
The Ford F-150 then crashed into the GMC pickup on its right side, both vehicles traveling in a northwesterly direction after impact. While the GMC pickup traveled into a grassy median, the Ford F-150 crashed into a Black Dodge Charger that was stopped at a stop sign on CR-49.
A passenger in the blue GMC pickup was taken to Lake City Medical Center where they later died.
The driver of the GMC pickup is in critical condition while the driver of the F-150 was transported to Shands UF with serious injuries. Troopers say the driver of the F-150 is in stable condition.
Charges are pending as FHP investigates the crash.
