Traffic backs up as State Road 50 is shut down because of a fatal accident Thursday at Ovenbird Road in Spring Hill. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the silver Lincoln was making a left onto SR 50 when it was struck by a pickup.

SPRING HILL — A 49-year-old Brooksville man was killed Thursday when his car was broadsided as he attempted to pull onto State Road 50.

According to Cpl. Earl Frazier of the Florida Highway Patrol, James R. Miller of 7744 Gordon Loop, west of Brooksville, was attempting to turn left onto SR 50 from Ovenbird Road, just east of Deltona Boulevard, when his silver 1999 Lincoln pulled into the path of a 2005 Chevy pickup being driven by Jeremy Yount, 33, of Spring Hill.

The impact was so severe that rescuers had to cut away the driver's side front and rear doors to tend to Miller. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A passenger in the pickup, Joseph J. Kelly, 45, was taken to Oak Hill Hospital with undisclosed injuries. Yount suffered only minor injuries and was not hospitalized.

No citations were issued.

Miller was the owner of Cash Register Insurance in Hudson.

  5. UF's move to deny white nationalist Richard Spencer a venue sets up a First Amendment court fight

    College

    In denying a notorious white nationalist his request to speak on campus, the University of Florida has brought a thorny legal battle to Gainesville in the name of keeping its students safe.

    Legal experts say the University of Florida will have an uphill battle in court proving that fears of violence from an appearance by white nationalist Richard Spencer will override the First Amendment. "There's a fine line between inciting lawlessness and engendering a situation where lawlessness arises," said Peter Lake, higher education law professor at Stetson University College of Law.
