Three Chiefland residents are in serious condition after a three-way crash Wednesday night in Levy County involving a Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission truck pulling a boat on a trailer.

Attie Sevilla Williams, 80, Christopher Williams, 31, and Bruce Gregory Hancock, 63, were taken to UF Health Shands Hospital with serious injuries, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report.

Hancock was driving a 1996 Chevrolet S-10 eastbound on County Road 320 approaching the intersection of Northwest 80th Court around 7 p.m. Attie Williams and her passenger, Christopher Williams, were traveling in a 2009 Nissan Versa behind him, the report said.

When Hancock slowed down to make a left turn into the Manatee Jiffy store, Williams failed to slow down and struck Hancock. Jordan Hilliard, 28, of Crystal River, was driving an unmarked FWC pickup with a boat and trailer combination and attempting to turn right onto County Road 320, the report said.

When Williams rear-ended Hancock, Hancock’s truck was propelled across the road and struck Hilliard’s boat and trailer. After the impact, Williams continued eastbound for 175 feet before coming to a final rest within the intersection of Northwest 80th Court, the report said.

Hancock came to a final rest facing westbound on County Road 320. Hilliard and his passenger, Joseph Jenkins, 29, of Crystal River, sustained no injuries, the report said.

The FHP said in its report that officials still are investigating the crash.
