Teen dies in Citrus County rollover crash

HOMOSASSA — A teenager was killed in a Citrus County rollover crash Saturday night after the Jeep she was riding in flipped on a dirt road.

Samantha Harris, 16, was a passenger in the 1996 Jeep driven by Kelly Harris, 17, when the crash occurred near the intersection of Cardinal Street and Hilltop Road in Homosassa, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Kelly Harris, the driver, was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital and released.

Troopers are investigating the crash and have not released the circumstances surrounding the incident.

"I can't believe it," Robert Engels, a friend of the crash victim, told Bay News 9. "I mean, she was a sweetheart. She was a sweetheart."
