Two drivers are seriously hurt in four-vehicle crash

Two motorists were seriously injured in a four-vehicle crash in front of Oak Hill Hospital on Monday, authorities said. Marco Martinez, 44, was driving west on State Road 50 shortly before 7 a.m. when he failed to notice a Saturn stopped at the intersection with Oak Hill Hospital Drive, the Florida Highway Patrol said. The Saturn, driven by Diana Studley of Brooksville, had been involved in a minor crash moments earlier. Martinez's Chevy Trailblazer ran into the back of the Saturn, became airborne and collided with a Hyundai sedan and a Toyota SUV traveling in an eastbound turn lane, troopers said. A pedestrian tending to Studley at the time, Jeffrey Palmer, 43, of New Port Richey, was thrown to the ground by the impact and received minor injuries. Martinez and the driver of the Sonata, Christiane Domico, 57, of Spring Hill, were flown by medical helicopter to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point in Hudson with serious injuries. Studley, 66, and the driver of the Toyota, 41-year-old Sherie Tumakay of Spring Hill, also received minor injuries. Martinez, of Spring Hill, was charged with careless driving.
