Preliminary report sheds light on five-vehicle crash in The Villages

A preliminary accident report is shedding light on a five-vehicle crash which occurred Monday afternoon in The Villages.

Charles Edward Brown, 57, of Belleview, was airlifted to Ocala Regional Medical Center, after the chain-reaction crash which occurred at 3:15 p.m. on U.S. Hwy. 27/441 at Griffin Avenue, according to information from the Lady Lake Police Department.

Emergency personnel were on the scene of a crash Monday afternoon on U.S. Hwy. 27/441 in The Villages.

Witnesses in another vehicle told police that Brown appeared to be “nodding in and out” as if he was having a possible “medical episode” prior to his white 1993 Chevrolet GMT-400 pickup crashing into the rear of a blue 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe driven by 84-year-old Richard Dolph of The Villages, who had been stopped in traffic on U.S. Hwy. 27/441. Dolph and his 75-year-old wife Mary, who had been a passenger in the vehicle, were transported by ambulance to Ocala Regional Medical Center.

The force of the collision pushed Dolph’s vehicle into the rear of a white 2016 Buick Encore driven by 19-year-old Danielle Kozma of Wildwood. She was taken by Lake EMS to UF Health The Villages Hospital.

Kozma’s vehicle crashed into the back of a red 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 driven by 29-year-old Jomary Milagros Correa Correa of Summerfield. She was not injured.

The impact of that collision pushed her vehicle into the rear of a white 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe driven by 73-year-old Kenneth Rocco Feo of Summerfield. His was the only vehicle that did not need to be towed from the scene. Feo and his wife, 68-year-old Jane Elizabeth Feo, escaped injury.
