Sumter Co, FL (June 1, 2021) – A two-vehicle collision in Sumter County ended in the death of a Miami man on Monday, May 31.
Initial reports revealed that the fatal impact took place on Interstate 75 near the time of 7:30 p.m. that evening. Two vehicles were traveling northbound on the highway in the center and inside lanes. Near milepost 332, the driver of the SUV in the center lane failed to maintain the lane, crashing into the right, rear-side of the other vehicle.

The 41-year-old Pensacola woman driving the second vehicle came to a stop on the outside shoulder and was not injured.
