Fort White woman killed in Columbia County crash


FORT WHITE, Fla. – A 62-year-old Fort White woman died Tuesday morning when her PT Cruiser left the road twice, overturned several times and then struck a tree, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers said Phyllis Hyatt was driving west on County Road 238 at Lazy Acres Court when she lost control of the car at 9:44 a.m. The car went onto the one shoulder of the road, then overcorrected and off the opposite shoulder before rolling, ejecting both the driver and a 37-year-old passenger before it struck the tree.

The driver died at the scene and Adam Hyatt was taken to UF Health in Gainesville with serious injuries.
