One man dead in Hernando County crash

SPRING HILL — A 70-year-old man was killed in a crash on U.S. 19 Monday afternoon.

The crash occurred at 3:52 p.m. at U.S. 19 and Pepper Street, Florida Highway Patrol troopers reported. Troopers said Ludolf Breymann, of Spring Hill, was killed in the crash.

Troopers said the crash occurred when Robert McCraw, 42, of Spring Hill, ran a red light as he drove a 1993 Cadillac south on U.S. 19. The car hit a 2008 Toyota driven by Breymann, who was heading east on Pepper Street through the intersection, troopers said.

Breymann was taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead, troopers said. Breymann's wife, Christa Breymann, was taken to Tampa General Hospital. Her condition was unknown late Monday night.

McCraw suffered minor injuries, troopers reported.

After the two vehicles collided, the Cadillac veered and struck a third vehicle, which was pushed into a fourth vehicle. Three people inside those vehicles suffered minor injuries, troopers reported.

Troopers were investigating the crash Monday night and didn't report any charges.
