According to the FHP report, a gray Lexus sedan was traveling north on State Road 997 (Krome Avenue) in the opposite direction with four people on board, very close to 245 Terrace, while a red Kia SUV was traveling toward the south by the same route. The driver of the KIA attempted an evasive maneuver, turning left and the front right of the Lexus struck him in the front right as well.
