According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Louis Edward Carter, 65, of Tallahassee, was traveling south on County Road 150 (NW Lovett Road) in a 2008 Dodge. At the same time, Kristina Dee Jarvis, 34, of Greenville, was also traveling south in a 2007 Chevy Tahoe.
Carter pulled onto the west shoulder of the road, and then pulled back into the southbound lane to turn around.
Jarvis saw Carter’s Dodge coming back into the lane. She steered the Tahoe to the left to avoid colliding with the Dodge.
There was no contact between either vehicle.
The Tahoe then traveled south onto the east shoulder of County Road 150.
Jarvis attempted to steer the vehicle back into the southbound lane.Jarvis overcorrected the Tahoe, causing it to travel southwest across both lanes of the road. The Tahoe then continued southwest onto the west shoulder of the road.
The Tahoe overturned and came to a final rest on its left side, facing east.
Carter came to a final rest facing south on the west shoulder of the road. Jarvis and her passenger, Amanda Gwendolyn Hinson, 27, of Greenville, received minor injuries in the rollover. They were taken to Madison County Memorial Hospital by private vehicle, where they were treated and released. FHP Trooper James I. Parker, Jr. was the investigating officer. The Greenville Volunteer Fire Department and Madison County EMS assisted him at the scene.
