Two men were seriously injured Monday afternoon in a collision on U.S. 19 in Levy County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

David Ray Brady, 76, of Trenton was headed south on the highway in a 1986 Ford pickup at around 3:25 p.m. as Michael Jeffrey Miller, 58, of Gulf Hammock, was driving north on U.S. 19 in a 2010 Ford pickup.

Brady turned left at Northwest 160th Street in front

of Miller's path, the FHP said. Miller swerved to the right to try to avoid the collision, and Brady’s vehicle struck Miller’s truck, which overturned. Miller, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected.

Both drivers were transported to UF Health Shands Hospital. Miller was in critical condition, the FHP reported, and Brady was in serious condition.
