Woman dies in two-car crash along U.S. 41

A 42-year-old woman died in a two-car crash Friday on U.S. 41 near Connerton Boulevard. Authorities withheld the name of the Land O'Lakes woman, pending notification of her family. The accident happened at 1:37 p.m. The Florida Highway Patrol said the woman was headed south on U.S. 41 and lost control of her 1987 Nissan sport coupe. She crossed into oncoming traffic and was hit by a tow truck. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The truck's driver — Raymond Eggers III, 51, of Hudson — suffered minor injuries. The road was blocked for part of the afternoon as emergency responders tended to the scene.

Pair arrested after police find drugs

More than 74 grams of crack cocaine were found during a drug bust Thursday, as well as 39 grams of marijuana, two guns and ammunition, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. Two people were arrested — Linda Exline, 18, and George Lewis IV, 29 — at their home, 10826 Piccadilly Road in Holiday Hill Estates. An undercover deputy bought crack three times from Lewis before the raid, a report states. Lewis and Exline both face charges of armed manufacturing and trafficking crack cocaine, as well as other drug charges. Exline is also charged with violating her felony drug probation. She is being held without bail at the Pasco County jail. Lewis, who has served three stints in prison for drugs, battery and theft, is in custody in lieu of $370,150 bail.
