According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a deadly crash happened Friday near East Palatka that left a teenager dead and three others seriously injured.
Records say the crash happened around 4:45 p.m. on State Road 207 near County Road 207A.
Deputies said a witness said a driver of a pickup truck was driving recklessly and speeding. The pickup truck was traveling south on S.R. 207. Troopers said the driver lost control of the pickup and the vehicle went into the grass median, where it overturned several times.
The reports say an 18-year-old Florahome boy died who was one of the four occupants. The three other occupants — an 18-year-old Jacksonville boy, a 17-year-old Jacksonville girl, and an 18-year-old St. Augustine girl — suffered serious injuries.
Troopers said only one occupant was wearing a seat belt.
