(WCJB) - A driver in a crash that killed four people on Waldo Road last month has been identified.

Using dental records, Florida Highway Patrol troopers were able to determine Michael Russell, 51, of Ocala was one of the drivers.

Troopers say Russell was driving west and veered into the eastbound lanes colliding head-on with a vehicle containing a family of four.

Brittany and Christopher Hesling were killed along with their four-year-old son. Their six-month-old daughter did survive.

A GoFundMe for the daughter has raised over 52-thousand dollars.
