Homosassa man dies in single-car crash

SUGARMILL WOODS — A Homosassa man died and two others were seriously injured Sunday when a car they were riding in left the road and hit a tree, authorities said.

Nathan Shepard, 19, was driving east on Cardinal Street, near the intersection of Meadowhill Point, in a four-door Saturn about 1 p.m. when the car approached another eastbound vehicle at a high rate of speed, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The Saturn swerved before it reached the other car, rotating off the side of the road where it hit a cable box and barbed wire fence. The car then collided with a tree.

Shepard died at the scene. Two passengers, Ryan Nadeau, 17, of Dunnellon and Ben White, 19, of Lecanto were taken to Tampa General Hospital in critical condition, authorities said.

The crash remained under investigation.
