21-Year-Old Dead And Two Injured In Wrong-Way Crash On I-75 At Jacaranda

VENICE FL – One person was killed and two people were seriously injured in a wrong-way crash on Interstate 75 In Venice.

The crash took place Monday night as a 37-year-old woman from Punta Gorda was driving a Hyundai Santa Fe SUV southbound on the northbound lanes of I-75 traveling toward the Jacaranda  Boulevard overpass.

As the Hyundai SUV continued going the wrong way in the left lane, a 21 year-old man  from Sun City driving a Nissan Altima, with a female passenger was driving the lawful direction of interstate 75 approaching the oncoming SUV.

At 10:45:00 PM the front of the Hyndai SUV crashed head-on onto the front of the Nissan Altima sedan. The collision between the SUV and the car, sent the SUV into the median where it came to stop against the guard rail facing to the northwest.

After being struck head-on by the larger SUV, the car was redirected to the right, where it came to a stop in the emergency lane on the right side of I-75 facing the north.

The 21-year-old driver of the Nissan Altima was pronounced deceased at the scene by Sarasota County EMS. The passenger of the Nissan Altma was critically injured in the crash, and has not yet been identified.

The driver of the SUV that caused the fatal crash was seriously injured.

FHP has stated that the crash is under investigation.
