OCALA, Fla. (AP) - Ocala Police say a two-vehicle head-on collision killed two people and sent a third to the hospital.

The Ocala Star-Banner (https://bit.ly/1cFHxD4 ) reports 86-year-old Thelma Sharbaugh and a 17-year-old boy were killed in the wreck and 18-year-old Cedric Pinkney is listed in critical condition at a local hospital Sunday morning. Authorities say the accident occurred when the car driven by Pinkney entered the left turn lane and failed to stop, striking Sharbaugh’s van on the front driver’s side.

OPD Lt. Butch Green says the 17-year-old appeared to be riding in the back seat of Pinkney’s vehicle. The boy and Sharbaugh died at the scene.

Police are conducting an investigation. Green says there has been no suggestion of drugs or alcohol involved or any excessive speeds.
