A 37-year-old Glen St. Mary man died Monday when his van crossed into the oncoming lane on State Road 121 and collided with a tractor-trailer northeast of Raiford.
According to a Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) release, the Glen St. Mary man was driving his van southbound on SR 121 north of State Road 16 at 4:04 p.m. when he veered into the northbound lane. The van collided with its left side into a tractor-trailer being driven by a 37-year-old Alachua man.
The van came to a rest on the west grass shoulder facing a southerly direction and the tractor-trailer traveled off the road onto the east grass shoulder and stopped facing in a northerly direction.
The Glen St. Mary’s van driver, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was killed in the collision. The Alachua tractor-trailer driver was not injured.
