Crawfordville Crash Seriously Injures Two

Comments Off

A 17-year-old from Crawfordville was in serious condition after a traffic crash in Wakulla County Tuesday morning, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report.

The unnamed teenager was driving a 1997 Dodge south on County 365 at about 10 a.m., when the car left the roadway and drove onto the west shoulder. The teen overcorrected, which caused the car to rotate counter-clockwise and re-enter the roadway, according to the report.

The Dodge crossed over the southound lane of County 365 and into the northbound lane, into the path of a 1993 Toyota pickup driven by Hugh M. Taylor, 62, also of Crawfordville. The right side of the Dodge collided with the front of the Toyota, the report said.

Both drivers were taken to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. Taylor was listed in serious condition following the accident. No update on the drivers’ current condition is available.

Taylor was wearing a seatbelt, according to the report, but the teenager was not.
