PALMETTO (WWSB) - A woman has died after a car crash in Palmetto Sunday afternoon.
The accident occurred on US-41 and Moccasin Wallow Road. On June 2, 2019 around 3:47 p.m. a 2001 Ford explorer driven by 18-year-old Aaron Walters of Cape Coral had three passengers inside, all from Bonita Springs, including 19-year-old Katelynn Greenhalgh, 18-year-old William Greenhalgh and 40-year-old Diea Brookshaw.
FHP says Walters was driving north on US-41 in the left lane headed towards the intersection of Moccasin Wallow Road.
FHP says it’s unknown what color the traffic signal was as Walters began to travel through the intersection at the same time as 19-year-old Allison David of New Port Richey was attempted to turn left on Moccasin Wallow Road while driving a 2011 MCPR Clubman with 19-year-old Alyssa Harrison of Oldsmar in the passenger seat.
FHP says Walters hit the left front side of David’s vehicle in the middle of the intersection. As a result of the crash, Walters and his passengers rolled over onto the median of US-41 and David rotated in clockwise motion.
Brookshaw was sent to Bayfront Hospital with critical injuries while everyone else received minor injuries. Brookshaw passed away at the hospital from her injuries on Thursday.
FHP says if anyone witnessed this crash please contact the Florida Highway Patrol at 239-938-1800.
