Multiple vehicle collision on Florida highway kills 1 and injures 6

Reports from an official Florida Highway Patrol release state that a multi-vehicle collision on Florida highway 90 killed one person and injured six others at about 1:45 PM on Wednesday, January 18.

The tragic accident took place near Jim’s Fish Camp, west of Treasure Bay Circle in Santa Rose county, and involved three or four cars.

Of the six injured, one had to be flown to the hospital for immediate medical attention.

A section of the eastbound lanes of Highway 90 remained closed for more than 2 hours following the crash.

A detailed investigation into the fatal crash is in progress, and more information is expected soon.

Our deepest condolences go out to the family of the deceased at this time of great grief. We hope for the full and fast recovery of all the injured.
