Triniece Surrency, 15-years-old of Macclenny, Florida died in a two -car automobile accident in Nassau County. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the wreck occurred on U.S. Highway 90 west of County Road 121. Triniece was a passenger in a 2002 Lexus driven by Darkeea Surrency, who lost control of the vehicle for an unknown reason. Troopers said the vehicle spun into another lane and hit a Hyundai with three passengers. The driver of the Hyundai, 30-year-old Sheila Erfilo, sustained major personal injuries, and the two children in the car, ages six and 9, sustained minor personal injuries. All three were transported to Shands for treatment.
According to family members, Triniece and Darkeea were on their way to church when Darkeea blacked out at the steering wheel. Triniece’s father, Theodore Surrency, said that the Baker County High School student loved reading, computers, music, spending time with her nieces and nephews, and going to church. Theodore said he knows that his daughter is in heaven now; ‘She was my baby. She was a great kid. And she will be missed.’
The investigation has revealed that alcohol was not a factor, and everyone was wearing a seat belt. Charges were pending due to the on-going investigation of the Nassau County accident. For more information on this topic, see 15-Year-Old Killed In Crash.
