One Dead in Head-On Collision in Manatee County

A 79-year-old man from Michigan was killed and a 38-year-old man from Parrish suffered serious injuries in a head-on collision in Myakka City.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the crash occurred on the evening of Friday, February 19 just after 7 p.m. on State Road 70, a bit east of Mobley Pond Road. Officers said the driver from Michigan was heading west when he crossed into the center line for unknown reasons. The Parrish man was in the oncoming vehicle and was unable to maneuver out of the way. He was transported o a nearby hospital where he was listed as being in serious condition from the injuries caused by the high-speed, head-on collision.

The Michigan man was pronounced dead of his injuries at the scene of the accident.

Head-on collisions have serious results

Head-on collisions, especially those that occur at high speeds, are among the most dangerous types of auto accidents due to the physics involved. These accidents have an elevated likelihood of death and serious injury, and the vehicles involved in these accidents are much more likely to be totaled than those in accidents that might only involve side collisions or rear-end collisions.

Common factors for head-on collisions include alcohol or drug impairment, driver distraction, falling asleep at the wheel or entering a divided highway on an offramp instead of an onramp.
