Live Oak woman killed when SUV collides with log truck trailer

Live Oak —

A Live Oak woman died from injuries she sustained after the SUV she was driving collided with the trailer of a log truck shortly after midnight Wednesday morning, the Florida Highway Patrol reported. 

The deceased, Tracy H. Deas, 42, Live Oak, was pronounced dead at 8:42 a.m. at Shands UF Wednesday morning, according to FHP.

FHP reports that a 1998 Kenworth log truck hauling logs made a right turn onto eastbound US 90 from CR 137 in Wellborn around 12:28 a.m., into the direct path of Deas, who was driving east on US 90 in a 2004 GMC Yukon. The Yukon struck the left side of the log truck’s trailer with its front.

Both lanes of US 90 were closed for several hours due to the post crash investigation, removal of logs and damaged vehicles.

Deas was transported to Shands UF where she later succumbed to her injuries. 

The log truck driver, Eliecer Caceres Labrada, 42, Ocala, was not injured. 

Charges are pending an investigation, according to FHP.
