Suwannee teen seriously injured in wreck

Live Oak — A Suwannee County teenager was seriously injured on Saturday, Sept. 15, in a wreck that occurred in O’Brien, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Matthew Spivey, 16, of O’Brien was traveling east on CR 349. In the report by FHP, Spivey stated that a deer ran across the roadway in front of him, crossing from right to left. Spivey then swerved to the left and traveled off the roadway onto the northernmost grassy shoulder. The vehicle then started rotating counter clockwise while traveling northeasterly and struck a fence with the right front side of the vehicle. The vehicle then overturned and came to a final rest upright facing north.

Spivey was transported to Shands Regional Hospital in Live Oak. He was not listed as a patient Tuesday morning. 
Trooper J.P. Sumner was the investigator at the scene.
