McAlpin man in critical condition after Friday crash in Suwannee

Live Oak — A McAlpin man sustained critical injuries in a single vehicle crash Friday afternoon in Suwannee County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Reports show that on Friday, July 4, at 2:13 p.m., a 2001 Mazda pickup truck, driven by Ronald Lee Johnson, 53, McAlpin, was traveling north on 129th Rd. near 158th Terr. in Suwannee County when he ran off the east shoulder of the road. Johnson over-corrected and the truck began to rotate in a counter-clockwise direction across 129th Rd., before striking a power pole with its right side off the west shoulder of the road. The truck came to final rest against the power pole facing in a northwesterly direction.

Johnson, who was not wearing a seatbelt, sustained critical injuries in the crash and was flown to Shands UF in Gainesville. Damage to the truck was estimated at $5,000 and no charges were filed, according to FHP.
