Vero Beach, FL (June 7, 2019) - A 75-year-old woman is dead following a head-on collision i=on Thursday, June 6th. The crash occurred at the intersection of 43rd Avenue and 2nd Street just after 12:00 p.m.
According to initial reports, a 2012 Dodge Durango driven by an unidentified individual was traveling northbound on 43rd Street near 2nd Street. Suddenly, for unknown reasons, the driver crossed over into the southbound lanes and collided head-on with a 2009 Toyota Vienna. Both drivers sustained serious injuries in the crash and were transported to nearby hospitals for treatment. A passenger in the Vienna, Maryann Lane, suffered critical injuries and was later pronounced dead at Lawnwood Regional Medical Center.
Authorities have not released a cause for the crash and are still investigating at this time.
We extend our most sincere sympathies to the family and loved ones of Maryann Lane, who lost her life in this tragic Vero Beach crash. Head-on collisions are a frequent cause of some of the most serious crashes on Florida's streets and highways. A driver in a head-on crash has typically lost control of their vehicle for one reason or another. In many head-on collisions, both cars are still traveling at full speed upon impact, thus leading to catastrophic results.
