TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - A major traffic accident in Wakulla County shut down the roadway for roughly two hours late Friday Night.

It happened around 9 p.m. on Highway 319 when the driver of a southbound SUV attempted to pass another in the center lane. The SUV collided head-on with another SUV that was traveling northbound near Rainbow Drive, said Sgt. Stone of the Florida Highway Patrol.

Both drivers were transported to Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare by ambulance, but their injuries did not appear to be life-threatening, Stone told WCTV’s Katie Kaplan.

“There were multiple occupants who were entrapped and emergency personnel are working to get them out of the vehicles,” said Lt. Jeffrey Yarborough, with the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office, which also responded to the scene.

All roads near the crash site were closed and traffic was rerouted until shortly before 11 p.m.

The Florida Highway Patrol is now conducting a crash investigation.
