Woman killed in Spring Hill crash identified


Woman killed in three-car crash Friday identified

Authorities have identified 62-year-old Iren Pivarcsi of Spring Hill as the woman who died Friday afternoon in a three-vehicle collision at Cortez and Mariner boulevards. The wreck occurred about 1:45 p.m., according to the Florida Highway Patrol, when a 2004 Mitsubishi sport utility vehicle driven by Melissa Renaud, 42, of Spring Hill, heading west on Cortez, ran a red light and struck a 2009 Hyundai driven by P.J. Cornacchioli, 67, of Spring Hill, who was driving south on Mariner and attempting to make a left turn onto Cortez. Renaud's SUV then struck the driver's side of Pivarcsi's 2002 Chrysler, which also was southbound on Mariner, pushing the vehicle into the median on Cortez. Pivarcsi was pronounced dead at the scene. Renaud, Cornacchioli and a passenger in Cornacchioli's car suffered no serious injuries. The wreck remains under investigation. Anyone who witnessed the crash is asked to contact the FHP at 1-800-500-1240.
