Brooksville, FL (December 22, 2020) - Six people suffered injuries in a two-vehicle crash that happened in Brooksville on Tuesday, December 21st. The crash was reported on U.S. Highway 41.
The Florida Highway Patrol was called to the accident scene just after the crash occurred. According to troopers, a 37-year-old Brooksville woman was driving an SUV with five occupants. The SUV was traveling northbound on U.S. 41 and approaching a flashing yellow turn arrow at Powell Road. At the same time, a sedan was attempting to make a left turn in the intersection. The sedan turned in front of the SUV, causing a collision. The sedan then rotated in the intersection before coming to rest.
The SUV driver and a 7-year-old passenger sustained serious injuries. Three other passengers in the SUV were treated for minor injuries. The 76-year-old female sedan driver sustained minor injuries. There is no word on charges at this time. Troopers are still investigating the crash.
