One person dead after a three vehicle car accident on 41 in Sarasota


SARASOTA, Fl. — A three-vehicle crash in South Sarasota County resulted in the death of one person.

The crash occurred Monday evening, August 8th, on US 41 at Inlet Blvd outside Venice. A 47-year-old man, driving a Lincoln Town Car, was coming up quickly behind a Honda SUV. To avoid a rear-end collision, the driver of the Lincoln swerved into the inside travel lane. He then lost control of his vehicle and side-swiped the Honda.

The driver of the Lincoln Town Car then crossed over the raised median and crashed into the path of a pickup truck. The two collided.

The driver of the Town Car was pronounced dead on the scene.
