Lutz man, 85, dies after crash on U.S. 41
An 85-year-old Lutz man died Thursday after a crash on U.S. 41, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
Anthony Veto Rinaldo was driving south on U.S. 41, near Leonard Road, about 10:45 a.m. when he veered into the median and pulled into the northbound lanes, FHP said. Rinaldo's Ford truck struck an Isuzu truck heading north, then rotated back across the median and became airborne, troopers said.
Rinaldo traveled back across the southbound lanes before hitting the west curb and landing nose-down on the guardrail. He was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa, where he died from his injuries, FHP said.
Isuzu driver Jerry Burton, 61, of Wesley Chapel, and passenger David Greenert, 49, of Land O'Lakes, were not injured.
