A Sunday evening accident on a State Road in Florida’s Holmes County left one dead and two others injured.
The accident occurred on State Road 8, near mile marker 101 around 5:30pm. A Ford Expedition was traveling east on that road, while a Honda Van was traveling westbound.
The Expedition’s left tire separated, causing the driver to lose control and drift into the center median, eventually passing into the westbound lanes.
When in those westbound lanes, the Expedition collided with the Honda Van, causing the Expedition to flip.
Dwight Knowles, 57 of Gainesville, was a passenger in that Expedition and was killed. The driver of the Expedition is being treated for serious injuries. The driver of the Honda Van is reported with critical injuries at Bay Medical Hospital.
Alcohol was not a factor and all involved were using their seatbelts at the time of the accident.
