One dead in Weeki Wachee car crash


Woman dies when car, pickup truck collide

A Pasco County woman died in a crash on U.S. 19 Wednesday morning, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

An FHP report gave this account:

A 2002 Nissan driven by Amanda Rice, 28, of Weeki Wachee was traveling east on St. Andrews Boulevard at 8:30 a.m. as a 2003 Chevy pickup truck driven by Shawna Masterson of Holiday was going south in the inside lane of U.S. 19.

Rice stopped at the stop sign at U.S. 19, then started to cross the highway when she collided with the truck, which began to rotate and overturned in the road, ejecting Masterson.

Masterson, 32, was pronounced dead at the scene. The report indicated she was not wearing a seat belt.

Neither Rice nor her passenger, 9-year-old Jake Rice, was injured.
