Fatal Accident on the Florida Turnpike at the Sawgrass Expressway.  Annette Cheshire, age 62, and Osvaldo Nino, age 52, crashed.

Saturday, November 4th, 2017:  Osvaldo Nino was driving onto the entrance ramp to northbound Florida Turnpike from eastbound Sawgrass Expressway.  Annette Cheshire was driving a Ford Mustang northbound on the Florida Turnpike in the inside lane.  For an unknown reason at this time, Mr. Nino's Toyota traveled in a westerly direction, entering Ms. Cheshire travel lane.  The Ford struck the left side of the Toyota.  Both vehicles came to rest within the inside lane of the Florida Turnpike.

The northbound lanes of the Florida Turnpike were closed down to only one lane that was usable while the accident was investigated and cleared.

A deputy with the Florida Highway Patrol was called to the scene of the crash and handled the complete investigation.
