Four-car crash in Spring Hill leaves woman dead, several injured

SPRING HILL — A four-car crash left a Hudson woman dead and several others injured Monday afternoon on U.S. 19 in Spring Hill.

The crash happened just after 3:30 p.m. as a 2001 Pontiac Montana was headed north on U.S. 19, just south of River Country Drive, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The car veered left onto the grass median and entered the southbound side of the highway, where it collided with a 2001 Nissan Altima, troopers said. Why the car left the road was unclear.

As the two cars collided, two other cars, a Toyota Corolla and a Kia Sorento, were unable to avoid the crash, troopers said. The Toyota hit the Pontiac before the Kia crashed into the Corolla.

Barbara Clark, 58, of Hudson, who was driving the Nissan, was taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point, where she later died.

Candice Hood, 38, of Spring Hill was driving the Pontiac and was thrown from the car, authorities said. She was taken to Bayonet Point with serious injuries. A passenger in her car, Tawny Hood, 20, was also hospitalized at Bayonet Point with minor injuries, authorities said.

The Toyota's driver, Enid Cedre, 47, of Spring Hill and her passenger, Wanda Reyes, 53, of Coral Springs, also suffered minor injuries and were taken to the Bayonet Point hospital, troopers said. The driver and a passenger in the Kia were uninjured.

The cause of the crash was under investigation.
