Two women were killed in a two-car collision off State Road 64, in East County, Tuesday night.
Two others were seriously and critically injured.
A Florida Highway report states 50-year-old Lisa Kaye Gunn, of Bradenton, and 56-year-old Nadine Hoffman, of Sarasota, died in the accident.
Meanwhile, Hoffman's family — 58-year-old James Hoffman and 15-year-old Josh Hoffman — were taken to Blake Medical Center with serious and critical injuries, respectively.
The FHP report states the accident occurred around 7 p.m. as Gunn was approaching Verna Bethany Road, heading eastbound on State Road 6, when she failed to negotiate the curve and traveled into the westbound lane of S.R. 64.
Gunn's 2008 Mazda struck the right front of the 2004 Ford Explorer driven by James Hoffman.
Gunn's vehicle rotated clockwise, coming to a final rest on the guardrail on the northbound shoulder of S.R. 64 East. The Hoffmans' vehicle rotated clockwise and came to a final rest blocking the eastbound lane of S.R. 64 E.
