CRESTVIEW — Three Georgia residents were killed on State Road 85 near Colonel Greg Malloy Road on Sunday morning after a pickup truck collided with another vehicle, law enforcement officials say.
At about 10:05 a.m., a Niceville resident “failed to maintain a single line” which caused the driver to drive into the center grass median and into the northbound lane of State Road 85, according to a press release from the Florida Highway Patrol.
The two vehicles collided, causing the pickup truck to roll onto its side.
The second vehicle continued southbound, hitting a street sign and a power pole.
The Niceville resident suffered minor injuries.
The names of the deceased were not available.
