BROOKSVILLE — A Brooksville man died Saturday night after losing control of his car and driving down a steep ditch, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Shortly after 8:30 p.m., John R. Bigelow Sr., 75, was driving a Hyundai Sonata south on Weeping Willow Street approaching State Road 50, west of Brooksville.
For an unknown reason, he suddenly veered off the road, troopers said, then onto an access road, over a curb and down a ditch.
He sustained serious injuries and was taken to Oak Hill Hospital. He died at the hospital, the patrol said.
