Two people suffered critical injuries earlier this month in a head-on crash on a Citrus County roadway.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the crash happened on US Highway 41 at East Live Oak Lane in Inverness.
A baby in one of the vehicles suffered minor injuries.
The crash occurred just after 8 p.m. when a 19-year-old man attempted to pass traffic on US 41 on the inside lane while approaching the intersection.
His 2006 Ford F350 truck smashed into the front of 1998 Chevy Silverado truck that was in the intersection making a left turn.
The 19-year-old driver and his 18-year-old passenger were taken to Ocala Regional Hospital with critical injuries.
The 57-year-old driver of the Chevy Silverado was not hurt.
Car accidents are a leading cause of injury and death on Florida roads, highways and interstates. Collisions can occur in all types of ways, including rear end collisions, side impact wrecks and head-on collisions. The most dangerous type of crash is a head-on collision, which occurs when two cars smash into each other head first. The speed of the vehicles in these types of accidents usually determine the severity of the injuries suffered. If you, or someone you love, has been injured in a head-on collision in Citrus County, our Citrus County Auto Accident Lawyers at Whittel & Melton can help you figure out how to file a claim for compensation.
Even at lower speeds, head on collisions can result in cuts and lacerations, bone injuries and fractures, joint injuries and whiplash. More serious accidents can result in brain, head and neck injuries as well as spinal cord injuries, paralysis, and wrongful death.
