One woman is dead after a single-vehicle crash Thursday morning in central Pasco County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Troopers said the 30-year-old Ashley Marie Puleo, of Spring Hill, was driving west on State Road 52 west of Bellamy Brother Boulevard about 8 a.m. when she lost control of her Ford pickup and hit a tree. The truck rotated, hit another tree and caught fire. The woman was airlifted to a hospital, where she died of her injuries.
Troopers don’t know why she lost control of the truck, they said, nor whether she was wearing a seatbelt. Alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
