FHP: Driver killed in head-on crash in Putnam County

PUTNAM COUNTY, Fla. – One driver was killed Tuesday afternoon in a head-on collision on State Road 19 in Putnam County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The victim, whose name and age have not been released, was driving southbound on SR 19 in a Nissan Frontier and for unknown reasons crossed the center line into the northbound lane.

The front right of the Frontier hit the front right of another Nissan Frontier, driven by 31-year-old Christina Carr of Palatka. Carr's vehicle spun and ended up in the middle of SR 19. The other Frontier also spun toward the unpaved shoulder, where it flipped and caught on fire, completely engulfing the vehicle.

Carr was transported to UF Health Gainesville with serious injuries.
