Two Spring Hill men die in overnight crash

SPRING HILL — Two men died in a single-vehicle accident early Saturday at Mariner Boulevard and Casa Grande Circle, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Their names are being withheld pending notification of their families.

The driver, a 48-year-old man, was heading south on Mariner when his 1985 Ford pickup truck weaved across the road — off onto the median, back on the road, then off it again — and hit a curb and began overturning, FHP said. The truck hit a decorative fountain and kept flipping, an FHP report said. The truck came to rest upside down in the intersection.

The driver and his 44-year-old passenger, both of Spring Hill, were pronounced dead at the scene. Both men wore their seat belts, the report states. The accident is under investigation, FHP said.
