According to the Florida Highway Patrol, two men are dead after a near head-on accident between a pickup and car on County Road 121 and Horseshoe Circle.
Troopers say, 53-year-old Roger Carlton was driving his 1997 Ford F-150 pickup south on County Road 121 when incident occurred. 31-year-old Matthew Potter was driving his 2004 Dodge Neon sedan north but failed to maintain his lane.
According to the investigators, the left front of the pickup hit the left front of the car and caused the pickup to overturn and come to rest on its roof. The car veered into a ditch and also overturned.
Reports say, both drivers died at the scene.
A passenger in the car, 30-year-old Paul Slay, was taken to the University of Florida Health Jacksonville and treated for minor injuries.
Police are still investigating to determine what caused the driver of the car to veer into the opposite lane.
Lab tests are pending. All three men involved in the crash are from Bryceville, Florida.
