A Lake City woman was killed and another driver seriously injured Thursday morning in a head-on collision in Columbia County, the Florida Highway Patrol reported.

Cynthia D. Brandt, 53, was driving a 2008 Pontiac GT west at 6:35 a.m. on State Road 100 near County Road 245A while Lynn L. Jones, 47, of Lake City was eastbound in a 1995 Ford Ranger, the report said.

Brandt crossed the center line into the eastbound lane, and Lane tried unsuccessfully to avoid the collision by swerving to the right. Neither driver was wearing their seatbelt, the report states.

Brandt died at the scene, while Lane was airlifted UF Health Shands Hospital.
