Ron Barwick Dies In Highlands Crash

LAKE PLACID, FL. -- Ronald C Barwick, 28 of Lake Placid, Fl. died in a crash Sunday night after failing to negotiate a curve on US98 in Highlands county.  Passengers Roy A. Olier, 46 of St. Cloud, Fl and Kalynn V. Linsindigler, 19 of St. Cloud suffered minor injuries. 

Barwick was westbound on US98 (SR700) at 10:55 p.m. west of Riverwood Circle approaching a long sweeping curve to the left. As his 2004 Toyota Tundra truck entered the curve, it continued off the roadway and onto the north shoulder. Barwick then over corrected, causing the truck to rotate in a counter clockwise direction which skidded across SR700 and onto the south shoulder. 

The right side of the truck collided with a barbed-wire fence, then overturned onto its right side, and came to final rest on its left side facing in a southeasterly direction. 

Barwick expired on scene as a result of injuries sustained in the crash. His remains were taken to the District 10 Medical Examiners Office.

Barwick had apparently posted on a Facebook page near the time of the crash.
