A child and an adult killed, many critically injured in a Florida head-on crash

The Florida Highway Patrol reported a head-on crash on State Road 60 that killed a 22-year-old woman and her 4-month-old niece around 11 AM on Thursday, January 19 near Kenansville. 

According to the police, four people from Miami – two women, and two babies – were traveling east in a black Nissan Altima on Peavine Road when their car tried to overtake another vehicle and smashed into a westbound red Mazda SUV head-on. 

Trooper confirmed that the 22-year-old driver of the Altima and a 4-month-old passenger died at the scene. The other woman and the 1-year-old baby were rushed to the hospital with critical injuries. The Mazda’s driver also suffered critical injuries, but fortunately, his vehicle’s passenger, who was also seriously injured – is now stable.

An investigation by the police revealed that the 4-month-old girl was the injured passenger’s daughter, and the 1-year-old was the daughter of the Altima driver. 

The Altima overturned after going off the road while the Mazda rested nearby. Two more cars – a Toyota Tacoma and a sedan – did not have a chance to avoid debris from the accident and crashed into the wreckage. The occupants of both vehicles remained unharmed. 

An investigation is still underway into the crash and additional details about the terrible crash are expected to emerge soon.

We extend our heartfelt condolences to the families of the deceased in this difficult hour. Our best wishes go out to the injured victims for a speedy and complete recovery.
