The Florida Highway Patrol recently investigated an accident involving a passenger vehicle and an 18-wheeler.  The passenger vehicle, carrying an adult woman and two children, did not stop at the end of Highways 164 and 29.  The woman driver drove directly into the path of the semi, causing the semi to run over the front of the vehicle – flattening it.


The passengers in the vehicle were taken to a local hospital for treatment.  The woman believes her brakes failed.  The accident is under investigation.
