Driver, 81, dies after his car, pickup collide

An 81-year-old Spring Hill man died Friday morning after he ran a stop sign and collided with a pickup on Spring Hill Drive, authorities said. Thomas A. MacLeary was heading south on Linden Drive in a 2006 Mitsubishi Galant just before 8 a.m. when he traveled into the path of a 1995 Chevy pickup heading east on Spring Hill Drive, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. After the collision, MacLeary's car continued rolling and struck a house in the 11000 block of Linden. MacLeary was taken to a hospital, where he died from his injuries, the report states. The driver of the pickup, 27-year-old Jennifer McCain of Spring Hill, and her 4-year-old passenger sustained minor injuries. The crash remained under investigation Friday.

Motorist threw knife, deputies say

The beige sport utility vehicle had followed the woman for miles on the Suncoast Parkway, flashing its brights, swerving between lanes. The woman suspected the other driver was upset he had been stuck behind her at one point and couldn't pass. He gave her the middle finger. Then, as the woman tried to move into the right lane so she could exit at State Road 52, the other driver threw a pocketknife through her open passenger window, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report. The knife was closed. The woman was not injured in the Feb. 12 incident. She took down the SUV's plate number and called deputies, who traced the vehicle to Carl Rohm, 43, a Spring Hill man who works as a server at Bern's Steak House in Tampa. Rohm was arrested Thursday on a change of throwing a deadly missile. He was released on $5,000 bail.
