Live Oak —
A Branford woman was seriously injured following a wreck in Lafayette County early Monday that involved her Toyota Camry and a John Deere farm tractor, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
According to FHP, Kristy Lynn Walker, 32, Branford, was traveling north on US 27 at SE Komondor Road in Lafayette County around 6:45 a.m. in the 2011 Camry when she struck the rear of a John Deere farm tractor, driven by Philip Lee Isler, 61, Mayo. FHP reported the tractor was traveling north in front of the Camry at a slow rate of speed and was straddling the solid white line. The Camry struck the rear of a loaded silage trailer the tractor was pulling, causing it to come unhitched from the tractor. After impact, the tractor and trailer left the road on the right shoulder; the Camry rotated in a clockwise direction coming to rest in the northbound lane.
FHP reported the tractor’s trailer had reflecting tape and an orange triangle on its rear. It also had red flashing lights that were in proper working condition.
Walker, who was wearing a seatbelt, suffered serious injuries and was transported to Shands UF.
Isler did not suffer any injuries, according to FHP.
Walker was cited for careless driving.
