The accident was reported early that day at around 7:26 a.m. at the intersection of US-19 and Drew Street. Two pickup trucks reportedly collided at the scene. A maroon pickup was making a turn right before the intersection when it was hit by a dark-colored truck.
The first vehicle sustained significant damage to its side, and the front of the second was seriously damaged. The entire area was blocked while emergency responders were at the scene. The crash victims were transported to local hospitals for treatment.
An ongoing crash investigation is underway.

Intersection Accidents in Florida
More than half of all auto accidents, according to the Federal Highway Administration, take place at or close to junctions. The most common reason for fatalities in accidents at intersections was listed as a driver running a red light or failing to stop for a stop sign. Another typical reason is failing to stop when turning left.
Automobile accidents can produce a wide range of injuries, from small cuts and bruises to more serious injuries such as brain damage, neck injuries, shattered bones, spinal injuries, and possibly even paralysis. Although the majority of car crashes result in significant injuries or even catastrophic ones, there are still those that end in fatalities.
It is impossible to emphasize the physical, mental, and financial toll that is taken not only on victims but also on their families; these effects are made all the more wrenching when they are the result of the carelessness of others.
