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.
