News: 1 dead, 4 injured in multi-vehicle accident in Pasco County


DADE CITY, FL – One person died and four others were hospitalized following a multi-vehicle crash in Pasco County Monday afternoon, according to Pasco News Online.

The Florida Highway Patrol said the driver of a Mercedes C300 was going north on US-301 north of Rapid River Boulevard when she crossed into the southbound lane.  The Mercedes crashed into a southbound Isuzu truck head-on, causing it to rotate into the path of a Toyota 4Runner going north.

The Toyota driver, a 19-year-old man from Dade City, died at the scene.  The driver of the Mercedes, a 39-year-old Zephyrhills woman, the driver of the Isuzu, a 61-year-old Zephyrhills man, and two passengers in the Isuzu, 19-year-old men from Plant City and Thonotosassa, were all transported to area hospitals.  None of their injuries were life-threatening.

The accident shut down the northbound lanes of US-301 while the wreck was being cleared and investigated.  The FHP is trying to determine the cause of the incident.
