Authorities release name of victim in Hernando fatality

SPRING HILL — 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. Neither Renaud, Cornacchioli nor a passenger in Cornacchioli's car suffered serious injuries.

Authorities continue to investigate the crash and asked that anyone who witnessed it contact the FHP at 1-800-500-1240.
