Two other victims, ages 17 and 18, sustained minor injuries and were transported to Bayonet Point Hospital for treatment.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, 18-year-old Ryan Scott Miller was traveling northbound on Culbreath Road in his 2006 Chevy Aveo, when he failed to stop at the intersection of Powell Road. As a result, Miller’s vehicle struck a 2014 Dodge Ram pickup, driven by Christopher Reed Russell, who was traveling westbound on Powell Road.
