Around 3 p.m. on Thanksgiving day, a white van and a ram truck were involved in a head-on crash on Highway 111 south of Bay Rockyford Road. The white van was carrying 10 people while the ram truck had one driver. Five people in the white van were killed upon impact—leaving six survivors including the driver of the ram truck.
“They had to cut the door off the truck to get the man out of the truck. (It’s) just a terrible crash you know,” Spurlin said.
Four passengers who were riding in the van were life-flighted to local trauma centers in Thomasville and Tallahassee, Florida.
