Fatal Head-on Collision in Flagler County

Florida (November 17, 2011)  A woman was killed after smashing head-on into a pickup truck on State Road 100 in Flagler County.  The driver, Kristen Westbrook, was traveling west in a 2005 Dodge pickup truck around 9:30 a.m. when she lost control of the vehicle crossing the centerline.  The Dodge crashed into an oncoming Ford pickup truck, driven by Timothy Gould.  The violent collision caused Westbrook’s vehicle to rollover, landing on the driver’s side.

The Ford pickup, towing landscaping equipment went off the right side of the roadway, down a grass embankment, finally coming to rest in a ditch.  The trailer became dislodged during the crash and littered the right median with lawn equipment and debris.

Twenty-nine year-old Kristen Westbrook was rushed to Flagler Hospital where she died.

Timothy Gould and his passenger, Alan C. Chase Jr., both sustained minor injuries.  According to the Florida Highway Patrol both men were wearing seat belts.  Kristen Westbrook was not wearing a seat belt.

Sadly this is the third fatal accident in Flagler County in the last 36 hours.
