Trenton residents seriously injured in Dixie car crash

Florida Highway Patrol:
Two Trenton residents were seriously injured in a single vehicle accident in Dixie County on Friday.
Eric Alan Burke, 27, was driving a 1936 Ford two-door sedan southbound on State Road 55 when for an unknown reason, he steered the vehicle into the median.
Burke reportedly took evasive action by steering right, which caused the vehicle to begin to rotate in a clockwise direction. The vehicle then crossed both southbound lanes of State Road 55 and then onto the south shoulder. It continued down an embankment as it rotated, crashing into two trees,
According to Trooper Alan Harrison, both Burke and his passenger, Jessica Elaine Laky, 22, also of Trenton, were airlifted to Shands with serious injuries following the 5 p.m. accident.
