A Brandon teen is in critical condition after a crash on Interstate 10 in Suwannee County this morning, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Reports show that on Friday, Feb. 14, at 10:45 a.m., Kaleigh Mack, 19, Brandon, was traveling east on I-10 at MM287, three miles east of US 129, in a 1999 Toyota Camry in the left lane when for unknown reasons she swerved toward the median. The vehicle rotated counter clockwise and the front passenger door crashed into a tree in the median.

Suwannee County Fire/Rescue arrived on the scene and had to extricate the driver from the vehicle. Mack was transported by Air Life 7 to Shands UF Trauma Center in Gainesville in critical condition, reports state.

According to witnesses at the scene, there were no obvious reasons or indicators to explain why the driver swerved from her lane of travel, FHP said.

Mack’s vehicle sustained $4,000 in damages.
