27 Yr Old Lakeland Woman Killed In Mulberry Crash

According to the investigation so far, PCSO received a 911 call around 9:53 p.m. from the area of SR 60 West near the intersection of Coronet Road. When first responders arrived, they found 27-year-old Laura Gonzalez of Lakeland who had sustained life-threatening injuries. She was transported to an area hospital where she later died from her injuries.

Gonzalez was the passenger of a blue 2002 Saturn; the driver was 32-year-old Antonio Gutierrez of Lakeland. Gutierrez suffered non-life threatening injuries and was transported to an area hospital where he is being treated.

Gutierrez was traveling west on SR 60 West, when for unknown reasons, he lost control of the vehicle. The Saturn crossed the outside lane and a right-hand turn lane before it struck a metal street light on the passenger side door. After striking the street light, the car flipped onto its roof and stopped in a ditch on the north side of the road.

The impact caused the street light to break and fall onto the roadway.

Impairment does not appear to be a factor in the crash. This investigation is on-going.

A portion of the roadway was closed for approximately 3 hours during the investigation, which remains on-going.
