Woman, 76, Killed In Old Dixie Highway Crash In St. Lucie County
ST. LUCIE COUNTY — A 76-year-old Fort Pierce woman died in a morning crash on Old Dixie Highway and Julian Drive, officials said.
The crash happened when the woman was driving a sedan southbound on Old Dixie Highway, according to a report by the Florida Highway Patrol released recently. An 18-year-old Fort Pierce man, also driving southbound on Old Dixie Highway, lost control of his sedan and hit the left rear of the woman’s car, the report said.
It is the policy of the FHP to not release the names of accident victims, citing Marsy’s Law, passed in 2018.
The woman’s car spun counter-clockwise in a southeast direction toward the east shoulder of Old Dixie Highway, the report said. The woman was taken to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center, where she died from injuries sustained in the crash, the report said.
After the impact, the 18-year-old’s sedan traveled southwest onto the west shoulder of Old Dixie Highway, where the front of the car hit a tree. The 18-year-old and a 19-year-old female passenger sustained minor injuries.
The crash remains under investigation.
