3 killed in head-on crash in Sumter County

Authorities say three people were killed in a head-on collision on a Florida road.

The Florida Highway Patrol reports that the crash occurred Friday morning in Sumter County.

Troopers say two SUVs were approaching each other from opposite directions when one of the vehicles suffered a blowout of the front left tire. That SUV crossed the center line and crashed into the other one.

FHP says both drivers died at the scene. A passenger in one SUV died later at an Orlando hospital, and a passenger in the other SUV remained at a Lakeland hospital in serious condition.
