LUTZ — An elderly woman was killed and three people were injured Monday when two cars collided on U.S. 41.

A northbound Jeep Cherokee smashed into a southbound Toyota Camry that was turning onto County Line Road, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers said a passenger in the Toyota, Violeta Reyes, 80, of Land O'Lakes died. She was wearing her seat belt.

Her husband, Antonio Reyes, 87, was driving the Toyota. He was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital in serious condition.

Susan Marie Wicklund, 48, of New Port Richey, was driving the Jeep and was seriously injured.

Passenger Melissa Jeanne Cothard, 26, of Holiday, was also seriously injured after she was thrown from the vehicle.
