Holiday man dies after collision at red light

HOLIDAY — A 42-year-old man died late Tuesday after his car ran a red light and collided with a truck.

Andrew D. Power was northbound on Alt. U.S. 19 at 11:40 p.m. when he drove through the red light at U.S. 19, the Florida Highway Patrol reported.

Power's Nissan collided with a Dodge pickup truck that had the green light to continue south on U.S. 19, the FHP said.

Power, of Holiday, was pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators are awaiting test results to determine whether alcohol was a factor.

The driver of the pickup, Allen G. MacMeeken, 20, of New Port Richey, and his passenger, John W. Binge, 21, of Tarpon Springs, suffered minor injuries.

All three men wore seat belts.
