A report from the Florida Highway Patrol states 53-year old Joseph Sweeney was traveling southbound on the dirt roadway at a high rate of speed when he lost control. The 2002 Chevy Impala spun multiple times before finally hitting a large pine tree directly on the driver’s side of the car.

Sweeney was not buckled up at the time of the crash- he was airlifted to Shands Hospital in Gainesville where he later died.
