Spring Hill, FL (January 4, 2019) - A 53-year-old pedestrian is dead following a crash in Spring Hill on Wednesday, January 2nd.
Edward Lugo was attempting to cross Spring Hill Road around 7:00 pm. As he was walking north across the roadway, he was struck by a 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt driven by 66-year-old Theresa Alagna. Alagna and a passenger, 72-year-old Carol Strange, sustained minor injuries. Lugo was critically hurt and rushed to Regional Medical Center at Bayonet Point where he died from his injuries.
The crash remains under investigation and there is no word on whether Lugo was in a crosswalk or whether any charges will be issued against Alagna.
