Three people from Tallahassee killed in a head-on collision in Florida

Leon County Sheriff’s Office has reported a devastating head-on collision in Florida that claimed the lives of three Tallahassee residents around 7 PM on Friday, January 20.

This fatal accident took place near Balkin Road, State Road 363 when an eastbound SUV swerved and drove directly into the path of a westbound SUV ”for reasons unknown.” As a result of the collision, both vehicles landed in the westbound lane in different directions.

The crash culminated in the unfortunate deaths of three people – the 77 year old driver of the eastbound SUV, the 63 year old driver, and a woman passenger of the westbound SUV. They were all residents of Tallahassee. It is believed that all the victims were wearing seat belts.

The Leon County Sheriff’s Office and Leon County Fire Rescue assisted Florida Highway Patrol to clear the scene and open the roadway after the incident.

In the coming days, more details will be released about the crash as investigations continue.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to the friends and families of the three victims.
