Hernando man dies in Lake County collision

A 60-year-old Hernando County man was killed Monday when a van collided with his truck on State Road 50 in Lake County.

Mark Miller of Nobleton was driving a 1999 Dodge pickup west near Lee Road, west of Mascotte, when the crash happened about 4:55 p.m., the Florida Highway Patrol said. A tire on an eastbound 2002 Ford van heading east separated, causing the van to travel onto the grassy shoulder. Troopers say the driver, Yuan Yao, a 37-year-old Orlando woman, over-corrected, causing the van to veer into Miller's truck.

Both drivers died at the scene. Neither was wearing a seat belt, troopers said.

A westbound 1993 Toyota pickup driven by Trenton Howard, 21, of Webster hit the right side of the van. Howard, who was wearing a seat belt, suffered minor injuries.
