NORTH PORT, Fla. (WWSB) - A 70-year-old man was killed and two teens seriously injured following an accident Saturday afternoon at U.S. 41 and Old Lazy River Road in North Port.

Troopers say a Dodge Caravan driven by 70-year-old Thomas Roushar of Minnesota was traveling north on U.S. 41 when Roushar attempted to turn left onto Lazy River Road, directly in the path of a Mercury E450.

The vehicles collided and the Caravan overturned. Roushar was killed.

Tristan Burroughs, 17, of Venice was driving the Mercury. He and his 15-year-old passenger, also of Venice, suffered serious injuries and were taken to Sarasota Memorial Hospital by Bayflite.

The crash remains under investigation.
