OCALA — Troopers have identified an Ocala man who is now in serious condition after striking a recreational vehicle early Monday morning in Ocala.

According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, 21-year-old John Garrett was transported to the Ocala Regional Medical Center after sustaining serious injuries in a collision Monday morning at 2559 Highway 484 in Ocala.

Troopers reported that Garrett was traveling westbound in the left lane of Highway 484 approaching a private driveway for a small plaza when a 2016 Itasca Sunstar RV was pulling out of the driveway.

The driver of the RV, 63-year-old Michigan resident Timothy Petersen told troopers that he saw Garrett’s headlights but assumed he had enough time to cross over to the eastbound lane of Highway 484.

Petersen pulled out into the path of Garrett’s 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora causing Garret to crash into the side of the RV.

Garrett’s vehicle then became wedged under the RV trapping Garrett inside until a Marion County Fire Rescue team was able to extricate him.
