FHP releases names of four people killed in Spring Hill wreck

SPRING HILL — State troopers have identified four people who died at the scene of a multivehicle wreck Sunday on U.S. 41.

Florida Highway Patrol officials said Edith Busto, 60, of Tampa lost control of a 1998 Volkswagen when she tried to pass another car in a no-passing zone, and swerved back into the northbound lanes around 5:45 p.m.

The Volkswagen spun on the wet roadway and collided with a 1995 Ford driven by Joe Wayne McBroom, 42, of Hudson, troopers said. McBroom died at the scene.

The Volkswagen also collided with a 2004 Toyota driven by Loi Dac Ho, 28, of Tampa, according to Florida Highway Patrol reports. She and her passengers, Hoa Le, 65, of Tampa and Daniel Nguyen, 11, of Tampa, were unharmed, troopers said.

Busto and her passengers, Juan M. Alas, 63, of Tampa and Carmen Rosa Gomez-Lopez, 49, of Tampa, were thrown from the vehicle and died at the scene. A fourth person in the car, Jorge Luis Busto Almarales, 48, of Tampa, was flown to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point in serious condition.

Families of the victims were not available for comment.
