According to the Florida Highway Patrol report, Ciarra Lynn Sweat, 17, of Lee, was traveling westbound on U.S. Highway 90 while Matthew Scott Miliron, 21, of Lee was traveling eastbound on U.S. Highway 90. As both were traveling, Sweat veered off onto the south shoulder of the roadway. As Sweat attempted to correct and travel back onto the roadway, she overcorrected the steering wheel causing her 2010 Honda Accord to travel eastbound in the westbound lane. As a result, the left front of the Accord struck the left side of Miliron’s 2009 Ford F350 and trailer. Sweat’s vehicle came to a final rest facing eastbound on U.S. Hwy. 90. Miliron’s vehicle and trailer final rest could not be determined due to being moved prior to the arrival of FHP. According to the FHP report, Sweat stated “I must have blacked-out…All I can remember is my cellular phone had dropped down onto the floorboard and I reached down to get it.” Sweat and Miliron were both transported to Madison County Memorial Hospital to be treated for their minor injuries. Both directions of U.S. Hwy. 90 were temporarily closed for approximately 60 minutes due to this incident. Sweat was cited with failure to drive in a single lane as well as operating a motor vehicle while not wearing her seatbelt.
