Live Oak, Fla. -- One man is dead following a collision yesterday evening in Live Oak, FL.
At approximately 7:25 p.m. yesterday evening, Anthony J. Crump, 53, of Live Oak, FL was traveling south on US 129 in a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500.
Rosalynn M. Griffith, 29, of Gainesville, FL, was also traveling south on US 129 in a 2001 Dodge Neon.
Crump closed in from behind on a slower traveling Griffith causing Griffith to take evasive action by steering to the left in an attempt to avoid a collision.
