Two-car crash kills one

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- A crash on State Road 13 killed one and critically injured two Saturday morning.

The crash occurred at the intersection of SR 13 and Ranchwood Lane around 9:30 a.m., according to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol.

Barbara Holmes, 67, was heading southbound on SR 13 with her passenger, 69-year-old Owen Holmes and attempted to make a left turn onto Ranchwood Lane. An on coming Chevrolet Camaro driven by Stephen Pippen, 25, was struck on the left side by Barbara's Volkswagen Beetle, the report detailed.

The impact caused both cars to travel into a northbound grassy ditch. Barbara's Beetle overturned in the process and came to a rest on its right side.

Owen Holmes, the passenger in the Beetle, died at the scene. Barbara Holmes and Pippen were transported to UF Health Jacksonville in critical condition.

No charges have been filed at this time, but are pending further investigation.
