On Christmas Eve, two men were killed and two women were severely injured in a tragic car accident in White Springs, Florida. The men, Tony Ogburn and Stephen Cordle, were riding in the front seat at the time of the crash. The women, Virginia Wagoner, 22, and Katlyn Cribbs, 14, were riding in the back of the vehicle.
On the night of the crash, the four occupants were traveling on Highway 41. The Florida Highway Patrol reports that the car, a Camero, was traveling at a high rate of speed, attempting to take a right turn. Shortly before midnight, the car crashed into a tree after Mr. Ogburn lost control. The two men died instantly.
Mr. Ogburn, 24, was a resident of White Springs. Mr. Cordle was a resident of Lake City, and was 22 years old at the time of the accident. Mr. Cordle’s wife, Ms. Wagoner, is currently undergoing rehabilitation at Shands Hospital in Gainesville. Ms. Cribbs has been released from the same hospital and is now at home in Jasper, Florida. The Florida Highway Patrol reports that neither Mr. Cordle nor Mr. Ogburn were wearing their seat belts.
The Law Office of Jeffrey Meldon & Associates would like to express its deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of the late Mr. Ogburn and Mr. Cordle, as well as the families of Ms. Wagoner and Ms. Cribbs.
