A 2-vehicle collision in Levy County killed a Morriston man and seriously injured a Gainesville man on Saturday evening.

According to a Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) release, a 55-year-old Gainesville man was driving a 2016 Ford F-150 east on State Road 121 at 7:50 p.m. when he entered the westbound lane and attempted to pass multiple vehicles in a no-passing zone.

The F-150 crossed back into the eastbound lane near the NE 184th Ct. intersection but struck a 1999 Toyota Corolla driven by a 25-year-old Morriston man. The front left of the pickup hit the front left of the Corolla and both vehicles overturned onto the north and south shoulders.
