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.
