Franklin woman, another driver die in head-on crash in Fla.

A Franklin woman and a Florida man are dead after a head-on collision on the bridge that leads to Florida Gulf tourist destination St. George Island.

Florida Highway Patrol said that Robert Majka, 70, of Lynn Haven, Fla., was driving to the island Saturday when his SUV crossed the center line and struck an SUV driven by Deborah Roberts, 53, of Franklin.

The Tallahassee Democrat reports both were killed. Three passengers in Majka's vehicle were taken to hospitals with serious injuries. The lone passenger in the Roberts' vehicle, Suzanne P. Gelser, 57, of Springboro, was also seriously injured.

The four-mile bridge connects the island with Eastpoint in Franklin County, about 70 miles southwest of Tallahassee.
