Woman killed in Pasco County traffic accident


Woman killed, man injured in crash

A midafternoon car crash Friday killed an 86-year-old woman and injured a man traveling with a 1-year-old.

The Florida Highway Patrol said Muriel Sinville Vitale of Port Richey was driving her 2000 Chevrolet Prizm north on Little Road just before 3 p.m. She turned left at Grove Road into the path of Joshua Michael Brown's southbound 2003 Ford F-150.

The collision spun the Prizm into a utility pole on the side of the road. Vitale died at the scene, and no charges have been filed pending an investigation.

Brown, 24, of Port Richey was taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point Hospital with minor injuries. He was not wearing a seat belt during the accident, according to the report. Emma Brown, 1, who was the passenger in the F-150, was wearing a seat belt and was not injured in the crash.
