PORT RICHEY — A 71-year-old man died Monday following a Sunday afternoon car crash.
Joseph Barile, of Port Richey, was driving south on Paradise Point Way, north of Tournament View Avenue around 4:45 p.m., when a deer came in front of his Chrysler Lebaron, according to Florida Highway Partol reports. Barile swerved left to avoid the deer, sending the car onto the median where it hit a tree. The car turned onto its roof as it deflected into the road.
Barile was taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point. He died Monday.
