From Florida Highway Patrol press release

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – A 32-year-old Archer man was killed in a single-vehicle rollover accident overnight.

At about 1:10 a.m., the man was driving a Toyota 4Runner west on SW Archer Road while swerving from lane to lane. Near SW 73rd Avenue, the vehicle traveled onto the right grass shoulder, then the driver overcorrected, and the vehicle traveled back across the westbound and eastbound lanes before traveling into the far grass shoulder and overturning. The driver, who was the sole occupant of the vehicle, was ejected and came to rest on the grass shoulder, where he was pronounced deceased.

  • Someone lost a son, perhaps a father, brother or husband…all because of a dumb choice not made.

    Seatbelts save lives, use them.

  • Unfortunately in life some people make mistakes they’ll never be able to learn from and this is a prime example of why seat belts are in cars. Maybe if he didn’t think he was a shriner riding a go-kart in a parade he would still be here today.

  • What this possibly a way this individual was attempting to commit suicide and succeeded? I know this is a horrible comment but a very real scenario. either way someone lost a loved one and is very hurt today.

  • I keep reading seatbelts save lives… Well there are also cases where seatbelts trap people in cars which end their lives as well… Its ok to ride a motorcycle with no helmet but we’re worried about seatbelts.. smh.. prayers to the family.
