Calvin Ray Young, who was driving a Dodge Neon, was killed Friday morning after his car and the Ford Mustang driven by Sharon Kim Lentricchia collided at the intersection of Ridge Road and Regency Park Boulevard in New Port Richey.

PORT RICHEY — A crash at Ridge Road and Regency Park Boulevard on Friday morning left a Hudson man dead and two others seriously injured.

Calvin Ray Young, 22, died after his car flipped over after colliding with another vehicle, according to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol. Young's passenger, Hector Giovanny Medina, 22, and the driver of the other car, Sharon Kim Lentricchia, 58, were taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point with serious injuries.

According to the report, at 6 a.m., Young was driving east on Ridge Road, approaching the intersection while Lentricchia drove southbound on Regency Park Boulevard. The report does not indicate who was allowed the right of way by traffic signals, but both vehicles came into the intersection at the same time.

Young's Dodge Neon hit the right front of the Ford Mustang that Lentricchia was driving, the report states. The Neon rolled onto the southeast corner of the intersection, where it lay on its side later Friday morning.

Northbound Regency Park Boulevard was blocked and the southbound turn lane of that road was also blocked. Ridge Road was closed at the intersection of Regency Park Boulevard.

  5. 'Baby Driver' literally turns heist movie genre on its ear, set to slick soundtrack

    Movies

    Buckle up for Baby Driver, a movie so full throttle cool that you want to fist bump the screen. Style is the substance of Edgar Wright's inventive heist flick, a fresh, masterful synching of music and getaway mayhem, as if La La Land's traffic jam was moving, armed and dangerous.

    Baby (Ansel Elgort) is a getaway driver for heist arranger Doc (Kevin Spacey). Plagued by tinnitus, Baby tunes out his distracting “hum in the drum” by listening to music while he drives.
