FHP identifies two drivers killed in head-on Land O'Lakes crash

LAND O'LAKES — Two people were killed Monday morning in a head-on collision on U.S. 41, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

The crash was reported about 7:30 a.m. near Sunterra Drive. Michael Cartee Boles, 36, of Spring Hill was driving north in a Chevy S-10 pickup truck on U.S. 41 when, for reasons that remain unclear, he crossed into the southbound lane, FHP said.

An oncoming Ford F-150, driven by Jeffrey Mack Osborne, 43, of Spring Hill veered off the road to avoid a collision. The car behind it, a Mitsubishi Galant driven by Joseph Norris Whaley, 21, was unable to swerve and hit the Chevy pickup head-on, FHP said. Boles and Whaley both died at the scene.

A fourth driver, Bradford Lee Ball, 31, of Spring Hill was driving behind the Mitsubishi and also veered off the road in his Toyota Corolla. He was not hurt.
