Multi-vehicle crash with head-on collision sends two drivers to hospitals

Two victims were transported to area hospitals Monday after a three-vehicle collision in Ocala.

The driver of a sedan that was involved in a three-vehicle crash on Monday in Ocala had to be extricated from the vehicle by Ocala firefighters.

Two vehicles were demolished in a head-on collision on NW 10th Street on Monday afternoon.

Multiple crews from Ocala Fire Rescue responded to reports at 4:40 p.m. of a motor vehicle accident at the 1800 block of NW 10th Street. Engines 1 and 3, Rescue 3, Tower 1 and a safety officer were dispatched to the crash.
Crews arrived at the scene to find a multi-vehicle collision with one patient in need of extrication, a report states.

Three vehicles were involved in the incident – a sedan, a pickup truck and a compact SUV. Two of the vehicles, the sedan and pickup, sustained substantial front-end damage caused by a head-on collision. The compact SUV sustained rear-end damage.

The driver of this pickup truck was hospitalized after a three-vehicle crash in Ocala late Monday afternoon.

Rescue units assessed and packaged the patient of the pickup while engine crews stabilized the sedan and prepared for driver extrication. After removing the driver’s door, firefighters gained access to the patient in the sedan. To ensure the patient’s safe removal, the roof of the sedan was removed.

The drivers involved in the head-on collision were transported to the hospital. The driver and passenger of the compact SUV had no injuries.
The Ocala Police Department and Marion Fire Rescue also responded to the crash.
