The third two vehicle crash on Highway 97 in less than a week happened in Walnut Hill Thursday night, sending one person to the hospital with minor injuries. The accident happened about 7:00 between County Road 99 South and County Road 99 North, just south of the Walnut Hill Mennonite School.

Authorities say it appeared that a pickup truck had pulled off the road to attempt a u-turn when it was struck by the car pictured above. The accident is under investigation by the Florida Highway Patrol.

This was at least the third two vehicle accident with injuries on Highway 97 this week. On Monday, one person was transported to the hospital after an accident south of Highway 164.
