Two teenagers from Spring Hill were killed when the car in which they were riding overturned and collided with a tree.
Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) Public Affairs Officer (PAO) Sgt. Steve Gaskins said that shortly after 11 p.m. on Nov. 11, a Toyota Camry driven by a 17-year-old man from Spring Hill and containing five other teenage passengers was traveling south on Mariner Boulevard north of Santee Street in Spring Hill when it failed to negotiate a curve in the road.
As a result, the car left the roadway, rotated and entered the front yard of a residence at 6225 Mariner Blvd. before it overturned and collided with a tree.
All five passengers were taken to area hospitals where two of the passengers, both 16-year-old males from Spring Hill, were treated for serious injuries. Two others, a 16-year-old male and a 17-year-old male, both also from Spring Hill, died as a result of their crash-related injuries.
The driver and a 16-year-old female passenger from Brooksville were both wearing seat belts and were not injured in the incident.
The other four passengers, including the two teens who died, were not wearing seat belts at the time of the collision.
