Citrus County, FL (November 29, 2018) - Three people suffered injuries when a car was T-boned by a truck near Crystal River on Wednesday, November 28th. The crash happened around 11:15 am.
Troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol were dispatched to US 19 following reports of a crash involving a white Dodge Ram 300 and a Toyota Camry. According to reports, 85-year-old Donald Hill was traveling westbound in the Camry along with his wife Annelle Hill. After stopping at a stop sign, Hill proceeded into the intersection where his vehicle struck the Dodge truck, driven by 47-year-old Jeffrey Fletcher. Fletcher's truck spun clockwise and rolled over one to two times before coming to rest near the median.
Fletcher suffered a serious upper-body injury while Annelle and Donald Hill suffered "incapacitating" injuries. Hill was charged with violating a stop sign. There is no further information at this tie.
