GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida authorities say a driver traveling in the opposite direction crashed head-on with an SUV killing a Georgia couple and leaving their young children injured.
The Florida Highway Patrol said in a Sunday statement that the driver who was traveling on the wrong lane of a road north of Gainesville also died in the crash. The driver hasn’t been identified because the car was damaged by fire.
Troopers said 30-year-old Christopher Hesling and 31-year-old Brittany Trowell Hesling of St. Marys, Georgia, were killed. Their 4-year-old boy was critically injured in the late Saturday collision, while their 6-month-old girl suffered minor injuries.
The two children appeared to have been traveling in child safety seats.
