Winter Haven, Florida – Around 5:55 p.m. on Wednesday, March 20, 2013, a 2001 Nissan four-door car was heading southbound on US Hwy 27 about 1,000 feet north of the intersection with CR 540 (Cypress Gardens Blvd) when for unknown reasons the driver lost control and the car crossed the median and entered into the southbound lanes of US Hwy 27.

The Nissan car struck a 2013 Nissan SUV which was heading northbound, causing the SUV to flip over and land along the east side of the roadway.
