3 Children Critically Injured And 2 People Dead After Head-On Crash On SR 70 Tuesday

MANATEE COUNTY – FHP reported that 3 children were in critical condition, and two adults died during a crash Tuesday night on State Road 70

The crash unfolded as a 38-year-old man from Bradenton was driving a sedan west on State Road 70, west of Sugarbowl Road with four passengers.

The passengers in the westbound sedan included a 5-year-old girl, a 7-year-old girl, a 12-year-old girl, and a 31-year-old woman all from Bradenton.

As the sedan continued westbound on SR 70, a 26-year-old man from Sarasota was driving eastbound on State Road 70 in a sedan with a 31-year-old woman from Bradenton.

The two vehicles approached each other west of the intersection with Sugarbowl Road.

At 11:35:00 PM, for reasons unknown, the driver of the westbound sedan with the young children failed to stay in their lane and their car swerved into the path of the oncoming eastbound sedan.

The left front of the westbound sedan collided with the left front of the eastbound sedan at speed.

After the head-on crash, the westbound sedan rotated before coming to a stop in the westbound lane of State Road 70.

The force of the collision rotated the eastbound sedan causing it to collide with a steel guard rail before coming to a stop.

The drivers of both vehicles were pronounced deceased at the scene of the crash. The 5-year-old girl, 7-year-old girl, 12-year-old girl, and 31-year-old woman riding in the westbound sedan were all transported to local hospitals in critical condition.

The 31-year-year old woman from Bradenton riding as a passenger in the eastbound sedan was taken to an area hospital in serious condition.

FHP has state that the crash is still under investigation.
