A Pinetta woman was involved in a two-vehicle wreck on County Road 257 on Monday, August 3 at 7:17 a.m., in Jefferson County. According to the Florida Highway Patrol report, Dennis Register, 65, of Tallahassee was traveling north on County Road 257 in the northbound lane in his 1993 Ford LT8000. Kathryn Rubio, 27, of Pinetta was traveling north on County Road 257 in the northbound lane in her 1996 Toyota Celica. Register began to slow to turn left into a private driveway while Rubio changed lanes into the southbound lane in an attempt to bypass Register. As Register began to turn left, the front right of Rubio’s vehicle collided with the left rear tire of Register’s vehicle. Upon inspection of Register’s vehicle, it was discovered that the left rear brake and turn signal were not functioning. Neither driver reported any injuries. Register was cited for faulty equipment and failure to yield.
