Lake Panasoffkee woman dies of injuries suffered in four-vehicle crash

A Lake Panasoffkee woman has died of injuries suffered in a four-vehicle crash Tuesday night in Sumter County.

The 47-year-old woman was driving a car at 6:30 p.m. southbound on County Road 470 near the intersection with County Road 487 when she was slowing down for stopped traffic, according to an accident report from the Florida Highway Patrol.

A 17-year-old Lake Panasoffee female driver was also southbound on County Road 470 when she attempted to pass the other woman’s vehicle. The teen driver entered the northbound lane to overtake the other woman’s vehicle and upon re-entering the southbound lane, struck a southbound pickup truck driven by a 19-year-old Lake Panasoffkee female. Her pickup was pushed forward and it struck a van driven by a 57-year-old Lake Panasoffkee woman, which also had been southbound. The vehicle of the woman who died collided with the rear end of the 17-year-old driver’s car.

The 47-year-old woman was transported by ambulance to an area hospital where she died of injuries suffered in the crash.

The 17-year-old and the 57-year-old woman driving the van suffered minor injuries. An 18-year-old female from Grand Junction, Colo., who had been a passenger in the 19-year-old’s pickup, also suffered minor injuries.
