A driver was ticketed following a three-car collision near Rolling Acres Plaza.
Preston Bates Speaker, 35, of Lady Lake, had been driving a red 2005 Ford Focus at 2:25 p.m. Saturday southbound on U.S. Hwy. 27/441 when his vehicle struck the rear end of a blue 2009 Chevrolet driven by 21-year-old Kyle Coleman Trickey, of Peachtree City, Ga., according to an accident report from the Lady Lake Police Department.
Trickey’s vehicle was pushed by the force of the collision into a red 2018 Ford CMAX driven by 65-year-old Mary Elizabeth O’Brien, of Ocala.
Speaker was ticketed on a charge of following too closely. His vehicle was towed from the scene, due to the deployment of the airbag.
