McALPIN — Two Suwannee County women were seriously injured in a two vehicle crash early Friday morning.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the crash occurred around 4:30 a.m. on U.S. Highway 129 on the overpass near McAlpin and shut down the highway for several hours.
The FHP report states that 41-year-old Susan Hale, of McAlpin, was traveling south on U.S. Highway 129 when her Chevrolet Tahoe veered off the roadway and hit the guardrail on the west side of the highway.
An overcorrection caused the Tahoe to travel into the northbound lane of U.S. 129 and into the path of the Mack semi driven by 51-year-old Leesa Hurley, of Wellborn, where the vehicles front left corners collided.
Hale was transported to UF Health Shands Hospital in Gainesville in serious condition, while Hurley was taken to Shands Regional Medical Center in Live Oak with serious injuries.
Charges are pending FHP’s investigation into the crash. Alcohol is not believed to have played a part in the accident.
