SANDERSON, Fla. -- Two people were killed a fatal crash in Sanderson in Baker County.

The FHP said a man and a woman were killed, and a third person has serious injuries.  

Witnesses at the scene tell Action News Alyana Gomez a bystander pulled a young boy from the wreckage.  The 3-year-old was taken to the hospital.  No word yet on the child's condition.

The ramp from US 90 to eastbound I-10 in Sanderson is closed as a result.

The FHP said three UPS vehicles were driving off I-10 and into a gas station when one of the trucks collided with the car.

The car was sent flying across the median and into a grassy area on the other side of the ramp.

Charges are pending against one of the UPS drivers.

The victims have been identified as 60-year-old Richard Owen Ratliff of Lake City, and 58-year-old Anne Rykard Ratliff.  Bentley Bennett, 3, is in serious condition.

They were following the leader NO ONE pays any attention to the laws of the road any more: Whether is was or was not a UPS Driver or Transport Driver I think a lot of people need to go back through Driving courses; They are running red lights because they are in a hurry to go no where or run through Stop Signs and pay no attention to oncoming traffic

I know a UPS driver ran over and killed a little toddler that was playing in the driveway up on St Simons a few years back. Can't help but feel they ALL drive way too fast for the size of the trucks their driving.I could not imagine ANY package is THAT important to take a life. We all see them speeding around town...but we don't call them in.

So sad. One moment of bad judgement and so many lives changed forever. Prayers for all involved.

Maybe now those heavy-footed UPS drivers will slow down! They drive like bats out of hell everywhere you see them, even on residential streets where there may be children playing or at the least pets. Do they get to go home when all their deliveries are made? I don't know this but I have thought it before. I have wondered why something like this has not happened before. Please slow down, UPS drivers.
