SPRING HILL — A 60-year-old Brooksville woman was killed Thursday evening and two other people were critically injured when a car turned into the path of their motorcycles on State Road 50, authorities said.
The woman, identified as Patricia A. Drew by the Florida Highway Patrol, was traveling west in the outside lane of SR 50 approaching Weeping Willow Street on a 2003 Harley-Davidson, troopers said. Albert J. Hagar, 64, and passenger Susan Helie, 60, were on another Harley traveling in the inside lane.
A Mercury Sable traveling east on SR 50 turned left into the path of the motorcycles. Both bikes collided with the Mercury. Drew, who was not wearing a helmet, was thrown from her bike and died at the scene, troopers said.
Hagar and Helie, both of Brooksville, were critically injured and taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point. Both were wearing helmets.
The driver of the Mercury, 51-year-old Linda Sue Peoples of Brooksville, was not injured.
The crash remained under investigation Friday.
