Two Die After Near Head-On Crash On SR 64 In Manatee County

MANATEE COUNTY – Florida Highway Patrol announced two people died after being involved in an auto accident on State Road 64 in Eastern Manatee County.

The deadly crash occurred as a 29-year-old man from Sarasota was driving a Honda Civic sedan heading east on State Road 64 and entered a left curve approaching the intersection with S.W. Oak Point Drive.

At the same time, a 54-year-old man from Wauchula was driving westbound on SR 64 in a Dodge Sport Utility Vehicle. The SUV entered the same curve approaching the intersection with S.W. Oak Point Drive from the opposite direction.

At 5:13:00 PM, for reasons unknown, the Honda Civic sedan veered off the roadway and onto the grass shoulder. After driving onto the grass shoulder the sedan then proceeded to continue in a northeast direction and reentered the road crossing the centerline of SR 64, entering the path of the oncoming SUV.

The right front of the Honda Civic collided with the left front of the Dodge SUV at speed. The force of the impact rotated the sedan counterclockwise before coming to a stop facing north partially on the westbound grass shoulder.

The impact of the crash caused the Dodge SUV to rotate counterclockwise while traveling northward, before finally coming to a stop facing southward on S.W. Oak Point Drive.

Manatee County EMS responded to the crash and pronounced both the driver of the Honda Civic sedan, and the driver of the Dodge SUV deceased at the scene of the crash.

Florida Highway Patrol is continuing to investigate the crash.
