OCALA, Fla. — Five people were transported to the hospital after a three-car crash in Ocala Tuesday night, police said.
The driver of one of the cars died from his injuries at the hospital, police said.
It happened after a Hyundai SUV left a Red Lobster parking lot and attempted to head east on State Road 200 when it pulled into the path of two vehicles traveling west, police said. A Scion T-boned the SUV, which caused the Scion to rotate counterclockwise, moving into the path of a Honda, and the Honda appeared to hit the rear of the Scion.
The driver of the Hyundai, Munir Shrouf, 56, died of his injuries. Officials said the other victims are in stable condition.
Westbound traffic is blocked from the 3200 block to the 3500 block of State Road 200 for several hours.
