Live Oak —

A 31-year-old Live Oak man was arrested Wednesday following a two-vehicle crash on US 90 East, in front of the Suwannee Country Club, for reckless driving with property damage, driving while license suspended or revoked (second offense), failing to drive a single lane and violation of probation, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

FHP reports that, according to witness statements, Justin Robert Zander, 31, Live Oak, was traveling eastbound on US 90 in a reckless manner in a 2005 Chevrolet Impala around 7:50 a.m. At the same time, a 1997 Ford F-150 pickup truck, driven by MaryAnn Faith Robertson, 26, Live Oak, was traveling westbound on US 90. FHP reported Zander swerved approximately two feet into the westbound lane, crossing the center line and driving into oncoming traffic. The Impala impacted the front left corner and side of the Ford with its front left side. The Impala then swerved back to the right and traveled off US 90 and came to a final rest on the Southern grassy shoulder of US 90. The Ford came to a controlled stop on the northern grassy shoulder.

Zander was transported to Shands Live Oak Regional Medical Center and later released. Upon release, Zander was arrested and booked into the Suwannee County Jail, FHP reported. 

Robertson nor her passenger, Marah Grace Malone, 6, Live Oak, were injured.
