Head-on Collision in Gainesville Leaves Two Dead

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on November 16, 2016

A car crash occurring Monday morning in Gainesville has left a 29 year old man and 36 year old woman dead. According to news reports, the motor vehicle accident happed on Southwest Williston Road near the intersection with Southwest Wacahoota Road.

Based on police reports, while driving a Nissan Pathfinder north on Williston Road, the man attempted to pass another vehicle in front of him while in a no-passing zone. When he moved over into the other lane, his car hit a four door Honda Accord driven by the woman. The head on collision crushed both vehicles, leaving them both facing the same direction and surrounding by a mess of glass, tire shreds and pieces of the cars. The two drivers were the only occupants of the vehicles.

Police say that the investigation is still in the early stages and, because of the amount of damage to the vehicles, is expected to take some time before they know what exactly transpired. Several witnesses are helping.
