Spring Hill resident dies in wreck on State Road 52

SPRING HILL — Authorities are investigating an accident that killed a 45-year-old Spring Hill resident and left two other people injured.

The crash happened about 4:45 p.m. Tuesday at State Road 52 and Shady Hills Road, just east of the Suncoast Parkway.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Leonar D. Genao de Nunez of Spring Hill was westbound on SR 52 in a 1994 Chevy Geo when the car crossed into the path of an eastbound 2002 Chevy Blazer driven by Gerard Sasso, 50, of Spring Hill.

After the vehicles collided, the Geo spun clockwise and came to rest across the eastbound lane. The Blazer spun in the opposite direction and overturned on its passenger side.

Genao de Nunez was killed. Sasso and his passenger, Wayne T. Tillman, 45, of Spring Hill, sustained minor injuries.

In a preliminary report, FHP said the accident does not appear to be alcohol-related.

  5. Pinellas County embarks on $19-million project to pull muck out of Lake Seminole


    SEMINOLE — Environmental experts, always concerned about the water quality of Lake Seminole, are assessing how much Hurricane Irma may have stirred up the nearly 1 million cubic yards of muck that lay on the bottom.

    Despite the expenditure of more than $30 million over nearly two decades, improved water quality in Lake Seminole remains elusive. The muck that lines the bottom of the 684-acre freshwater lake keeps accumulating while the cost to remove it keeps rising. Having exhausted less drastic methods for restoring the lake, the county is about to embark on a six-year dredging project expected to cost $18.6 million. DOUGLAS R. CLIFFORD  |  Times
