A child died and four other people including another child suffered serious injuries in a three-vehicle crash Saturday night on State Road 29 in Collier County.

A Florida Highway Patrol report said the crash happened around 7:30 p.m. on the two-lane 29 about two-and-a-half miles south of Interstate 75.

The crash report said an SUV, driven by a 29-year-old woman from Largo was southbound on State Road 29 when she changed lanes.

Two sedans were northbound on State Road 29, one ahead of the other.

The first sedan swerved evasively to the right and onto the grass shoulder to avoid the SUV. The left rear side of the SUV sideswiped the first sedan and then collided with the front of the second sedan.
