Pickup truck strikes car head on in Florida

LIBERTY COUNTY, Fla. — A Hahira woman perished when the driver of a southbound pickup truck veered into her northbound lane and struck her car head on at around 5 p.m. Sunday on State Road 12, according to reports from the Florida Highway Patrol.

The 2005 GMC pickup truck traveled out of the southbound lane across the broken centerline into the northbound lane and collided with the front of the woman's 2009 Hyundai Elantra in the northbound lane of State Road 12.

The truck came to rest on the east shoulder of State Road 12, facing southeast, while the car ended up on top of the pickup truck, facing west, reports stated.

Tina “Robbie” Crosby, 45, of Hahira, the driver of the Elantra, was pronounced deceased by Liberty County Emergency Medical Personnel, reports stated. Both drivers were transported to the Tallahassee Memorial hospital where the truck driver’s condition was classified as “serious,” reports stated.

The Florida Highway Patrol was assisted on scene by Liberty County Sheriff’s Department, Liberty County EMS and Fire Department and Calhoun County Emergency Medical, reports stated.
