Land O Lakes, FL (August 14, 2021) – A collision involving a semi-truck ended in the death of two people in the Land O’ Lakes area on Friday, August 13.
The deadly crash occurred on US-41 near Crystal Lake Road late that evening. Local reports revealed that two Land O’ Lakes men were traveling southbound in the center lane of the highway in a Ford Mustang. At the same time, a single-unit 4300 Series International truck was headed northbound.
Reports from authorities revealed that the semi attempted to make a U-turn in front of the Mustang. This caused the Mustang to crash into the side of the truck and underneath the frame of the vehicle. The 30-year-old man and the 32-year-old man traveling in the Mustang suffered fatal injuries and were pronounced dead at the scene.
An ongoing investigation into the deadly accident is underway.
We would like to extend our deepest condolences to the families of the deceased victims at this time.
