A 74-year-old Palm Harbor man died Saturday night in a three-car crash in Pasco County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Abram Hanna was riding as a passenger inside a Ford four-door about 8:40 p.m., when driver Jakoub H. Hanna traveled into the path of another vehicle, troopers said.

The Ford had been moving west on State Road 54, then Jakoub H. Hanna attempted to turn left onto Trinity Boulevard. The vehicle entered the path of a Buick Lucerne, traveling east on State Road 54, troopers said.

The Buick, driven by 18-year-old Alyssa Rain Gill, struck the right side of the Ford, causing it to rotate into a Toyota Camry facing north at a red light on Trinity Boulevard.

Abram Hanna was transported to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point in Hudson, where he later died from his injuries, troopers said.

Jakoub H. Hanna, 71, of New Port Richey, also was transported to the hospital and remains there with serious injuries.

Gill, of Trinity, suffered minor injuries, as did Taylor Avelina Guzman, 16, of Odessa, who was driving the Camry.
