EAST LAKE, FL. – An Odessa man and a woman were killed in a crash caused by an SUV driver who hit an oncoming SUV in a no-passing zone.
According to Florida Highway Patrol, the crash happened just before 6 p.m. Tuesday on Keystone Road near Meadows Drive.
Florida Highway Patrol said the SUV, driven by 31-year-old Cory Robert Corrado of New Port Richey, was heading west on Keystone Road and passing other cars in a no-passing zone.
The driver of an oncoming SUV steered to the outside shoulder of the road to avoid crashing into Corrado, according to the FHP. But Corrado’s SUV hit the other vehicle, causing it to rotate and overturn.
As it crashed, it slid across a bicycle trail, where a 58-year-old man and a 50-year-old woman rode on a tandem two-person bike, troopers said.
The couple, both from Odessa, died at the scene of the crash from injuries sustained.
Corrado is charged with two counts of DUI manslaughter for drugs and vehicular homicide.
