Live Oak —
A Live Oak man died in a two-vehicle wreck on Interstate 10 early Wednesday morning, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
According to FHP, Jeffery N. Russell, 48, Live Oak, was killed after he was ejected from his vehicle that overturned on the interstate.
Russell was traveling west on I-10 in the right travel lane at mile marker 271 in Suwannee County around 4:40 a.m. when, for unknown reasons, the driver of a 2001 Hyundai Genesis struck the left rear of Russell’s 1987 Chevy Van. After impact, both vehicles began to travel in a northwesterly direction still engaged with one another. The vehicles then separated, entering onto the right grass shoulder where they both began to overturn. During the overturning of the van, Russell was ejected and was pronounced deceased at the scene of the crash.
The driver of the Genesis, Angela M. Meadows, 41, Wesley Chapel, Fla., was transported to Shands UF with minor injuries.
