Four people died in three separate vehicle accidents this past weekend in Putnam County, Florida, reports First Coast News.
The Florida Highway Patrol reports that just before 10 p.m. on Saturday, a vehicle traveling east on Sisco Road failed to make a turn and drove off the south shoulder. The driver over-corrected, spun, and flipped the vehicle four or five times.
The driver and passenger were both ejected through the windows. The passenger, a 42-year-old woman, died, and the driver sustained severe injuries.
A second fatal crash occurred around 2:30 a.m. Sunday on U.S. 17 and Troupe Road. A 55-year-old man had put his motorcycle down with his girlfriend trapped underneath. He was trying to divert traffic away from the motorcycle when a car hit and killed him. The girlfriend was not hurt.
In a third deadly accident on County Road 308 near the Georgetown Shortcut, a Honda Civic hit a tree and a power pole and then two pine trees. Both men in the car died at the scene.
County Road 308 was closed, and the power was out in the area for several hours.
