78-Year-Old Brooksville Man Dies in Crash Saturday Night

BROOKSVILLE, Fla. – A car crash Saturday night claimed the life of a 78-year-old Brooksville man. According to Florida Highway Patrol, a car driven by a 19-year-old Tampa man, was traveling northbound on Owls Roost Lane, approaching the intersection of Mondon Hill Road. A pickup truck, driven by a 78-year-old Brooksville man was traveling eastbound on Mondon Hill Road approaching the intersection, and at the intersection, the 19-year-old turned left into the path of the pickup truck.

As a result, the front of the man’s pickup truck struck the left side of the car—both vehicles rotating to rest along the north shoulder and westbound lane. Transported to an area hospital, the 78-year-old man later died from injuries suffered during the crash.

The 19-year-old Tampa man suffered serious injuries and his passenger, a 20-year-old from Brooksville sustained minor injuries in the crash.

  2. Absolutely. Something needs to be done about this. Aggressive driving seems to be the norm here. It’s sad and tragic
