Two hurt in 3-vehicle Avon Park wreck

AVON PARK - Two people were seriously injured in a three-car accident at 5:05 p.m. Thursday at State Road 64 and Olivia Drive. Cpl. Larry McClellan's report shows Anita G. Maddox, 69, of Wauchula, was westbound on SR 64 in a 2001 Toyota when Daniel R. Jenkins, 55, of Wauchula, eastbound in a 2007 Ford F-150, turned left onto Olivia Drive. The Toyota struck the right side of the pickup, which rotated it into a 2001 Mack truck driven by Patrick Cruce, 61, of Zolfo Springs. Maddox and a passenger in her vehicle, Horace Graham, 76, of Wauchula, were transported to Lakeland Regional Medical Center with serious injuries. Jenkins and Cruce did not report injuries. All four were wearing seat belts. Alcohol was not a factor, the report showed.
