Three people are dead after a fiery single-vehicle crash just before midnight Tuesday on State Road 100 near the border of Clay and Putnam counties.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol’s initial crash report, a pickup truck was heading east on SR-100 when it ran off the road while attempting to pass another vehicle near County Road 219. The pickup hit a tree and burst into flames.
The driver and two passengers were killed. They have not been identified.
The identities of the victims may have to be determined through DNA records, a process conducted by the medical examiner’s office.
