FHP: Woman ran red light in wreck

An 89-year-old Brooksville woman died Tuesday afternoon after authorities said she ran a stop light and collided with a pickup at Deltona and Forest Oaks boulevards. Charlotte Davis died at St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa about an hour after the crash. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Davis was traveling east on Forest Oaks in the left turn lane about 2:15 p.m. when she failed to stop for a red light. Her 1993 Oldsmobile was struck by a 1999 Ford pickup driven by William C. Reuben, 30, of Spring Hill, who was traveling north, in the inside lane, on Deltona. Reuben's truck then veered into the path of a 1988 Toyota driven by Susan C. Daniels, 41, of Spring Hill, who was traveling north on Deltona. There were no other injuries. All three vehicles came to rest in the roadway, blocking the busy intersection during the late afternoon hours.
