1-year-old boy dies following two-car crash

Dean Wyers died in the fatal crash Thursday.

A traffic accident at Main Street and Clark Road has proved fatal. A one-year-old has died in the two car crash.

Dean Wyers was riding in the vehicle that Kristi Tucker, 30, was driving along Clark Rd. near the intersection of U.S. 17. For reasons still under investigation, Tucker drove her vehicle into the path of an oncoming sports utility vehicle traveling southbound on U.S. 17 in the left lane.

The front of the SUV struck the front, left side of Tucker's vehicle and came to a final rest in a ditch after striking a sign post, according to authorities. Wyers was killed in the accident.

All parties involved, including a 4-year-old also riding in Tucker's vehicle, were transported to UF Health Jacksonville. Tucker is said to be in critical condition, according to the official accident report.

It is unknown at this time if speed, alcohol or controlled substances played a role in this traffic accident. Evidence is still being gathered by authorities.

A GoFundMe was created for Wyers with a $10,000 goal. You can click here to donate.
