GADSDEN COUNTY, Fla. (WCTV) — A woman was killed and three others, including two young girls, were seriously injured in a rollover crash on Hardaway Highway in Gadsden County on Wednesday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
According to the FHP, a 26-year-old man was driving the car while a 24-year-old woman, a 2-year-old girl and a 3-year-old girl were the passengers.
A witness told FHP troopers the car approached slower traffic in the eastbound lane, so it entered the westbound lane and passed two vehicles. The driver lost control of the car, and the car went onto the westbound shoulder. FHP says that's when the car traveled through a yard and crashed into a tree.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, while the other three people all suffered serious injuries.
The children had to be freed from the vehicle, the firefighter said.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol online map, the crash happened around noon, near Faircloth and McMillian roads.
