Late last month, a fatal accident tragically claimed the lives of one young couple and injured six other people. According to one local news source, the accident occurred around 4:40 in the afternoon in Lecanto, Florida, between W. Grover Cleveland Boulevard and C.R. 491.
Evidently, a Suzuki Aerio was traveling eastbound when for an unknown reason it crossed the center line and collided with a Toyota Prius. The Prius struck the passenger side of the Aerio, and both vehicles ended up on the north side of the road.
The driver of the Aerio and her passenger were both pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. There was another three-year-old passenger in the back seat who sustained major injuries but is currently listed in stable condition. The Prius had five occupants in total, all of whom were taken to the hospital for emergency treatment. One day after the accident, a 78-year-old passenger passed away from the injuries she sustained in the accident.
