Polk County, Florida -- A traffic crash involving a pickup truck and a Ford Taurus closed State Road 60 about 1 1/2 miles east of County Road 630 in Polk County for several hours on Sunday, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Office.
The Dodge pickup, driven by 41-year-old Racquel Zimmerman of Port St. Lucie, was westbound when it reportedly lost control on the wet highway and slid into the eastbound lanes into the path of the Taurus.
The car's driver, 62-year-old Elizabeth Miller of River Ranch, was trapped in her vehicle and had to be freed by the Polk Co. Fire Department. She was flown by helicopter to Lakeland Regional Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.
The only person injured in the pickup was the driver's husband, Wayne Zimmerman, who was treated for a shoulder injury. The sheriff's office says everyone was wearing seatbelts and all airbags deployed.
No criminal charges are anticipated at this time.
