Two weeks and four days after his teen-age daughter died from injuries received in a single-car crash on her way home from school, James J. Wiencek was killed in a similar accident Saturday.

Continue to 2nd paragraph Wiencek, 37, was on his way home Saturday night on a rural county road in Archer. He was less than a mile from his family home and farm when his 1990 Ford veered off the road and struck several trees, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Wiencek, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was pronounced dead at the scene, FHP reported.

His daughter, Jacklyn Wiencek, 16, died in the hospital on Dec. 11 from injuries suffered in a crash on Dec. 7.

She was a passenger in a Chevy Cobalt that ran off the side of southbound U.S. 27/41 and struck a tree about a mile from Newberry High School.

The crash that killed James Wiencek occurred at about 8:45 p.m. on SW 143rd Street near the intersection at SW 124th Lane. It closed the street to traffic for more than two hours.

James Wiencek is survived by his wife, Ivy Wiencek; a son, James Wiencek II; and a daughter, Abigail Wiencek.

"It's just a terrible tragedy, and I think it was just another one of those freak accidents," said Sherri Rayborne, a friend of the family who was taking calls for Ivy Wiencek Sunday evening.

Rayborne said Ivy Wiencek was focusing on her two remaining children.

The Wiencek family owns and operates an animal shelter, Shady Rest Ranch, out of their home in Archer, which they had recently moved into.

Rayborne said both Ivy and James Wiencek took a leave of absence from work to stay by their daughter's side while she was in the hospital for five days following the accident. Also killed in the crash with Jacklyn Wiencek was the driver, Kaitlin Bailey, 16, of Gainesville
