Infant dies Thursday in U.S. 27 wreck in Suwannee County

Live Oak — The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating a two-vehicle crash in Suwannee County which claimed the life of a four month old infant Thursday.

The crash occurred on U.S. 27, approximately .8 miles east of 29th Road around 12:10 p.m.

According to FHP, a 2007 Chevrolet Impala, driven by Charles E. Giddens, 81, Fort White, was stopped on the northbound shoulder of westbound U.S. 27. A 2002 Kia Spectra, driven by Thomas B. Ingram, 29, Lake City, was traveling eastbound on U.S. 27. Giddens was attempting to make a U-turn and travel eastbound on U.S. 27 when he traveled into the direct path of Ingram. FHP reported that Ingram struck the right rear of the Impala. Giddens traveled onto the south shoulder striking a traffic sign and fence. The Spectra came to a final rest partially obstructing the eastbound lane.

The four month old, Connor Michael Ingram, passenger in the Spectra, was not properly restrained at the time of the crash. The infant was transported to the Lake City Medical Center where he later expired due to his injuries.

Thomas Ingram, who was not wearing a seatbelt, did not sustain any injuries. Giddens suffered minor injuries. His passenger, Tailore M. Thomas,23,  Lake City, received no injuries.
