Two dead in Spring Hill after vehicle flips into canal

A 56-year-old Weeki Wachee man died Tuesday night after the vehicle he was riding in left the road and flipped into a water-filled canal, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Harlow Harless was taken to Oak Hill Hospital, where he died from his injuries. The vehicle's driver, 72-year-old Diane Harless, of Mount Pleasant, Mich., also died from her injuries Wednesday after being transported to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point.

A 6-year-old passenger from Weeki Wachee suffered minor injuries and was taken to Spring Hill Regional Hospital.

The crash happened about 7 p.m. on Shoal Line Boulevard, north of Porpoise Street, according to an FHP crash report. Diane Harless was northbound when she drove onto the east shoulder of the road, then over-corrected. The vehicle crossed the south lane and went into a canal, where it flipped and submerged, according to the FHP.
