Citrus County, FL (May 30, 2019) - An ambulance and a motorcycle were involved in a collision on Tuesday, May 28th. The crash happened around 10:00 a.m. at the intersection of US-41 and East Apex Lane.
According to preliminary reports from the Florida Highway Patrol, 27-year-old Stephanie M. Bryant was driving an ambulance in the southbound lanes of US-41 when she attempted to make a left turn. As she turned, Bryant collided with an oncoming motorcycle driven by 45-year-old William Philip Freeman. Bryant and a passenger got out and treated Freeman at the scene. He was later taken to Citrus Memorial Hospital where he died of his injuries.
