A Wednesday crash on U.S. Hwy. 308 claimed a second victim on Thursday.

Joan Staehle, 66, died of injuries sustained in the crash. Her husband, Robert, also 66, died at the scene Wednesday when his northbound van veered into the southbound lane of U.S. Hwy. 301 at Dead River Road, striking a tractor-trailer.

Staehle's 1999 Chrysler van caught fire after impact with the tractor-trailer, whose driver was not injured.

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the accident.
