Spring Hill man, 75, dies from crash injuries

SPRING HILL — A 75-year-old Spring Hill man who rear-ended a sedan on U.S. 19 over the weekend has died from his injuries, the Florida Highway Patrol said Tuesday.

The victim, identified as George A. Wolcott, 75, was driving north on U.S. 19 on Saturday afternoon in his 1985 Chevrolet pickup when he hit the back of a Mazda stopped at the Pine Forest Drive traffic light, an FHP report said.

Wolcott was taken to Oak Hill Regional Hospital, but it was unclear whether he died immediately or in the days following the crash.

The Mazda driver, 27-year-old Thomas Brady of Weeki Wachee, was wearing his seat belt, as was his unidentified passenger, the report stated. Brady was not injured and was not under the influence of alcohol.

Wolcott's passenger was wearing her seat belt, but the report did not indicate if he was. Brady's passenger and Wolcott's passenger sustained minor injuries and were treated at Oak Hill.
