Two-Vehicle Collision on U.S. 301 Kills Jeffrey Scott Pfeifer
Manatee County, FL (September 23, 2017) – A man was killed in a two-vehicle collision Friday night, as reported by the Florida Highway Patrol.
According to the FHP, the collision occurred around 6:15 p.m. on September 22 on U.S. 301.
57-year-old Jeffrey Scott Pfeifer, of Parrish, was driving his Ford Explorer southbound on the road. As he made a left turn into a driveway, Pfeifer failed to yield to oncoming northbound traffic. This led Pfeifer to crash with the Nissan Altima of 52-year-old David Michael Atteberry, of Sarasota.
The impact led the Ford to be airborne, overturn, and hit a traffic sign and light pole.
The Nissan spun before coming to a stop on the side of the road.
Pfeifer was pronounced dead at the scene by first responders.
Atteberry sustained serious injuries and was brought to Blake Hospital for treatment.
We extend our condolences to the family and friends of the victim.
