Lakeland, FL (March 5, 2019) - A head-on crash on State Road 60 claimed the life of one person on Tuesday, March 5th.
The Florida Highway Patrol says that a 77-year-old man driving a Nissan Sentra attempted to make a lane change when he lost control of his vehicle. The Sentra traveled into the opposite lane of travel and collided with a 2018 Chevrolet Cruze that was traveling eastbound. The driver of the Cruze, Sabrina Rae Eldridge, sustained serious injuries. The Sentra driver, whose name has not been released at this time, died from his injuries.
Troopers blocked a portion of State Road 60 while they investigated the crash. The man's name is expected to be released after his family has been notified.
