A 1998 Ford Explorer was northbound on U.S. 231, North of Waller Road in the outside lane. A witness in front of the Explorer stated that she saw the vehicle coming up behind her at a high rate of speed. The Explorer swerved into the inside lane; then, swerved back into the outside lane, over-correcting. The Explorer overturned several times before coming to a final rest on the East shoulder of the roadway near the treeline on the Explorer's left side facing southwest. The driver of the crash received critical injuries.
UPDATE** The driver of the Explorer, Kiaya P. Cardwell, 23, of Fountain, Florida, succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced deceased at Bay Medical Center on June 26, 2012 at 9:40 a.m.
