Dade City, FL (November 18, 2019) – At 2:05 p.m. on Friday afternoon, a fatal two-vehicle crash took place at the intersection of US-301 and US-98 in Dade City.
The Florida Highway Patrol and Pasco County authorities responded to the scene of the accident where they found that an 80-year-old man was killed.
The crash took place when a Honda CRV was leaving the local Chevron gas station. The driver, the 80-year-old man, turned left into the highway’s travel lane. He came to a stop at the intersection and proceeded, which is when another vehicle collided with the left side of his.

Police continue to investigate the circumstances leading up to the collision.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
