A truck driver was confirmed dead in a head-on car crash in Martin County that left his car in flames, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Rowland Gregory was out for a drive with his 32-year-old wife, Florence Gregory, before the crash happened, FHP said.
The FHP report said, a 27-year-old Okeechobee woman was driving her 2000 Ford F-150 east on Southwest Warfield Boulevard about 10 miles northwest of Indiantown when she left her lane and entered the westbound lane where Gregory was driving a 1988 Ford sedan. The cars collided and Gregory car was “engulfed in flames,” according to FHP reports.
Florence and the Ford driver were flown to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center in Fort Pierce with serious injuries. The Ford driver’s passenger, an 18-year-old girl, was driven to Martin Hospital South with minor injuries.
It wasn’t immediately known whether the Ford driver or Avila were under the influence of alcohol or any of the four people were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash, FHP said. The wreck remains under investigation. Anyone with relevant information concerning what must have caused the car crash is encouraged to contact the FHP Department.
