Two Killed, And Two Injured In Crash On Moccasin Wallow Road Sunday Afternoon

Manatee County –  Florida Highway Patrol announced a serious crash with multiple deaths and multiple injuries on Moccasin Wallow Road, Sunday afternoon.

The accident took place east of Carter Road, as a 50-year-old woman from Parrish FL was driving a Toyota sedan heading east on Moccasin Wallow Road, with a 52-year-old male passenger.

At the same time, a 64-year-old woman from Sun City Center was driving westbound in a Honda sport utility vehicle with a 90-year-old male passenger.

Following closely behind the westbound Honda SUV, was a third vehicle, a Chevrolet Camero.

At 3:45:00 PM, the unknown driver of the Chevrolet Camero decided to pass the Honda SUV, despite the oncoming sedan in the other lane.

The Chevrolet Camero, entered the eastbound lanes and accelerated to overtake the Honda SUV as the Toyota sedan was approaching.

To avoid a head-on crash with the Chevrolet Camero, the driver of the sedan swerved toward the right, out of the lane and onto the grass shoulder of Moccasin Wallow Road.

After the Camero passed the driver of the Toyota sedan attempted to drive back onto the eastbound lane, but the driver over-corrected and the car drove into the path of the oncoming Honda SUV.

Despite the attempt to avoid a head-on crash caused by the reckless passing attempt by the driver of the Camero, the front of the Toyota sedan crashed into the front of the Honda SUV.

The driver of the Toyota sedan was pronounced deceased by first responders at the scene of the accident. The passenger of the Toyota was taken to Blake Medical Center in serious condition.

The driver of the Honda SUV was critically injured in the head-on crash and also taken to Blake Medical Center. The passenger in the Honda SUV, died at the scene of the crash.
