Fatal Overturn Crash on Fruitville Road Near Spring Brook Farm Road in Sarasota County, FL


Sarasota County, FL – A severe auto accident occurred at the intersection of Fruitville Road, east of Spring Brook Farm Road, in Sarasota County, Florida, on the evening of March 24, 2024. The Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) is currently investigating the incident that resulted in one fatality and minor injuries to another individual.

According to the FHP report, the accident took place at around 7:20 PM when a pickup truck, driven by a 49-year-old woman from Mayakka, Florida, was heading east on County Road-780 (Fruitville Road). For reasons yet to be determined, the vehicle veered off the road onto the paved shoulder east of Spring Brook Farm Road.

In an attempt to regain control, the driver overcorrected to the left, causing the vehicle to travel back across the travel lanes. The pickup truck, driven by a 49-year-old woman from Mayakka, Florida then collided with the guardrail and overturned onto the north shoulder of the road. During the overturn, both the driver and her passenger, a 53-year-old woman from Sarasota, Florida, were ejected from the vehicle.

Tragically, the passenger sustained critical injuries and was promptly transported to a nearby hospital, where she was later pronounced dead. The driver of the pickup truck suffered minor injuries in the crash.

This devastating event highlights the critical importance of maintaining control of one’s vehicle and the potential consequences of overcorrecting. The FHP’s investigation into the specific circumstances leading to the accident is ongoing, with further details expected to be released as they become available.

Authorities are urging witnesses or anyone with information regarding the crash to come forward to assist with the investigation. As the Sarasota community mourns the loss of life, this accident serves as a sobering reminder of the unpredictability and risks associated with driving.
