BRANFORD, FL – According to an online news report at suwanneedemocrat.com, a man from O’Brien, Florida tragically died in an accident that sent two others to local hospitals in serious condition following a multi-vehicle collision earlier this week.*

The accident occurred at the intersection of State Road 247 and County Road 49.  Per the Florida Highway Patrol, a blue GMC pickup truck was headed southbound on County Road 49 through the intersection with State Route 247 around rush hour when it slammed into the front of a Ford F-150 and then struck a Dodge Charger that was a stop sign on County Road 49.

Following the crash between the F-150 and the GMC, the GMC traveled into the grassy median while the F-150 then slammed into a Dodge Charger that was located at a stop sign on County Road 49. 

An 85-year-old male from O’Brien, Florida was riding as a passenger of the GMC and was taken to an area hospital where he was pronounced deceased.  The operator of the GMC, an 85-year-old female from O’Brien, Florida was taken to a local hospital in Gainesville, Florida where she is listed as in critical condition.
