Head-on collision in Osceola County leaves three dead and two seriously injured
Three people were killed and two others suffered injuries in a head-on collision in Osceola County on Monday morning. The accident occurred on State Road 60 around 5:25 a.m.
A 21-year-old woman from Royal Palm Beach was driving an SUV southbound on S. Kenansville Road when she traveled into the northbound lane and struck head-on into a pickup truck being driven by a 37-year-old man from Okeechobee.
Both drivers were pronounced dead on the scene, as was one of the passengers in the pickup truck. The other two other passengers in the pickup truck that was struck head-on, all from Okeechobee, were taken to Raulerson Hospital with serious injuries.
Everyone was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident except the driver of the SUV. The crash is still under investigation, and FHP did not include in the accident report whether alcohol played a factor in the fatal crash.
