Citrus woman killed in crash on I-75

RIDGE MANOR WEST — A 25-year-old Citrus County woman was killed Sunday when she was ejected from a vehicle on Interstate 75, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Authorities said Julianne Inwood was riding in the rear left passenger seat of a 2000 Ford Mustang about 8:30 a.m. when driver Sonia Lugo-Haviland lost control of the vehicle.

The car went into the median and smashed into the guardrail. The FHP said the Mustang then spun around, pitching Inwood from the vehicle.

Inwood, of Inverness, was taken to Brooksville Regional Hospital, where she was later pronounced dead. Troopers said she wasn't wearing a seat belt.

Lugo-Haviland of Inverness, who also was not wearing a seat belt, was seriously injured in the accident. She was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa. Her condition wasn't immediately clear.

A second passenger, 31-year-old Allison Torres of Inverness, suffered minor injuries and was also taken to Brooksville Regional.

Charges have not been filed, pending the results of a toxicology report, the FHP said.

Joel Anderson can be reached at or (352) 754-6120.
