Two killed in Christmas Eve crash

Two others critically injured

Jasper — Two area residents were killed in a Christmas Eve, single-vehicle crash in Hamilton County and two others were critically injured, the Florida Highway Patrol reported.

According to FHP, Tony Brady Ogburn, 24, White Springs, and Stephen Michael Cordle, 22, Lake City, both died from injuries sustained in the wreck.

FHP reported that around 11:45 p.m. Ogburn was traveling south on US 41 in a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro approaching a right hand curve near US 41, about 500 feet north of Collins Street. Ogburn reportedly failed to negotiate the curve and traveled onto the east shoulder. The Camaro struck a road sign with its front then continued in a southerly direction. The Camaro then struck a tree with its front and rotated clockwise striking a second tree with its rear. The Camaro was located facing east in a wooded area east of US 41.

Both Ogburn and the right front passenger, Cordle, were pronounced deceased at the scene. Both female rear passengers, Virginia Kay Wagoner, 22, Jasper, and Katlyn Paige Cribbs, 14, Jasper sustained critical injuries and were transported to Shands of UF in Gainesville.

Neither occupant in the Camaro wore seatbelts, according to FHP.
