Brooksville woman killed in crash; passenger injured

WEEKI WACHEE — A Brooksville woman died Wednesday night after running a stop sign and hitting several trees, authorities said.

Tammy M. Evans, 41, was driving her Chevy Silverado north on Shoal Line Boulevard about 10 p.m. and failed to stop at the intersection at Cortez Boulevard, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Evans' truck hit several trees on the north shoulder and turned over, ejecting both her and her passenger, Ronnie P. Brooks, 32, of Brooksville. Neither was wearing a seatbelt, the patrol said.

Evans was taken to Oak Hill Hospital in Brooksville, where she died. Brooks suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene, troopers said.

Troopers suspect alcohol was a factor in the crash but the investigation continued Thursday. No additional details were available.
