Head-On Collision On State Road 64 Injures One

Florida Highway Patrol Announced a crash with injuries on S.R.64.

The collision happened as forty-two year old Nickolay Nikolav of Sarasota drove a Volvo tractor-trailer westbound on State Road 64. At approximately 5:50 in the evening a 2013 Kia Forte driven by twenty one year old Punta Gord resident Bittany Yancy, gradually drove out of the eastbound lanes where the vehicle crashed head on with the heavy truck.

The resulting crash critically injured Yancy and she was transported to Blake Medical Center for treatment.

Troopers noted both drivers were wearing seat belts and that Yancy would be cited for failing to maintain lane.
