A Citra man was killed Sunday when his vehicle collided with a crane at the intersection of State Road 326 and NE 25th Avenue.
Bennie Odeen Price had been traveling north on NE 25th Avenue around noon when he failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection with State Road 326. Price’s SUV was then struck in the right side by a 2015 Grove Crane, driven by Michael Collins, of Edgewater, a Florida Highway Patrol report states.
A witness reported that medical personnel were performing CPR on Price before he was transported to Ocala Regional Medical Center, where he died as a result of his injures. Collins received minor injuries. It’s unknown if alcohol played a factor in the incident, the report says.
