A Georgia woman died in a wreck on I-75 in Florida Saturday afternoon, Gainesville.com reported.
Antonia Carvalho De Sousa, 37, of Acworth, died at the scene of the crash, which also injured two other passengers traveling with her, according to a Florida Highway Patrol release obtained by Gainesville.com. The two injured included an 8-year-old girl, and both were transported to the UF Health Shands with minor injuries.
The crash took place near the 404 mile marker of I-75 when two southbound vehicles crashed after both drivers swerved to try to avoid a third vehicle, the release said.
De Sousa drove a 1999 Nissan Pathfinder and the other involved vehicle was a 2017 Lexus GX 460 driven by Ronny Yung, 64, of Lisle, Ill., the release said. Both tried to avoid a white BMW, also traveling south, that changed lanes without caution, the release said.
