Florida Highway Patrol reported a devastating head-on crash in Florida on Sunday, January 29 about 1 AM. The terrifying crash occurred on U.S. 27 and County Road 773 in Glades County when a wrong-way Lexus SUV crashed into a Jeep Compass.
According to troopers, the northbound Lexus was traveling the wrong way in the south lane and crashed head-on into a southbound Jeep, causing the Jeep to overturn and burst into flames. Both the occupants of the Jeep, the driver and a pregnant passenger, were killed in an instant from the collision’s violent impact. The crash also killed a 28-year-old woman passenger of the Lexus.
The 37-year-old driver of the Lexus was seriously injured and transported to a local hospital. He was wearing his seat belt at the time of the accident.
At this time, no names and ages have been released about the Jeep’s deceased driver and passenger.
There was a long delay in reopening the expressway after the accident. A preliminary investigation of the deadly crash is underway, and charges should be filed soon.
Our deepest condolences go out to all the grieving families in this time of unbearable grief. We wish a speedy recovery to the injured.
