Tragic Accident Leaves Two Teenagers Dead in Leon County, Florida


June 20, 2019

LEON COUNTY, FL – According to an online news report at wtxl.com, emergency crews responded to an accident that occurred on Highway 310 over the weekend.  However, by the time they arrived on the scene, it was already too late.*

Law enforcement is still trying to figure out what happened that caused a vehicle to veer off of the road and hit a tree, which caused the death of two teens.

The individual behind the wheel was an eighteen year-old male.  His father indicated that he was a very loved and cooperative kid.  The father notes that he taught his son everything that he had learned about fixing cars.  The eighteen-year-old was riding with a sixteen-year-old passenger.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the accident occurred on Thomasville Road which is United States Highway 319. The crash happened early in the morning.

Per the police report, a 2008 Nissan Altima driven by the eighteen-year-old teenager from Thomasville was heading northbound on Thomasville Road close to Horseshoe Plantation Road when the car went off of the road.  The vehicle then went into a grassy median where it lost control and slammed into a tree located in the vicinity.

The impact of the accident caused the vehicle to split in two, with the rear of the vehicle coming to rest on its hood.

The driver was partially thrown from the vehicle as a result of the impact of the crash.  The Florida State Patrol reports that the sixteen-year-old passenger died at the scene of the accident. The sixteen-year-old, also from Thomasville, has not been identified.  

There are no further details on the accident at this time.  The crash remains under investigation by local police.
