SARASOTA - One person is dead and 3 others injured after a vehicle crash in Sarasota.

It happened Sunday around 7 p.m. near the intersection of DeSoto Road and University Parkway.

Sarasota Police say the driver of a car going west on University lost control, crossed the median, struck a tree, and then hit an S.U.V. that had 3 people inside.

The driver of the car, 34-year-old Andrew Davis Truex, died. All three people in the S.U.V. were injured. 44-year-old Kenneth Davidson was taken to Blake Medical Center as a trauma alert. 78-year-old Patricia Bailey and 70-year-old Kaye Swan were taken to Sarasota Memorial with injuries.

Police had to close the intersection for several hours as they worked the scene.
