A Sunday afternoon collision has claimed the life of a man from Spring Hill.
Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) Public Information Officer (PIO) Sgt. Steve Gaskins said that around 1:30 p.m. on July 11, a 74-year-old woman from South Rockwood driving a sedan and her 78-year-old passenger from Spring Hill were traveling eastbound in the left lane of County Line Road approaching Ruskin Ave. At the same time, a 49-year-old Spring Hill man driving a motorcycle was traveling westbound on County Line Road.
At the intersection, the sedan carrying the women turned left into the motorcyclist’s path. The front of the motorcycle subsequently collided with the right side of the sedan.
Neither of the women in the car were injured.
The man driving the motorcycle was transported to an area hospital where he later died from injuries sustained in the crash.
