1 killed, another seriously injured following Trilby road two-car crash 

A yet to be identified Zephyrhills driver, 70, has died in a crash after car turns into his path at intersection at U.S. 301 and Trilby Road at about 8:50 a.m., Florida authorities say.

The accident occurred when a 21-year-old Lacoochee man was driving west on Trilby Road approaching U.S. 301 when he took a left turn and entered the path of the Zephyrhills man heading north on U.S. 301. The front of the first car struck the left side of the second car.

The intersection is controlled by a stoplight but it was not immediately clear who had the green light.

The Zephyrhills man died on the scene of the crash while the Lacoochee man sustained serious injuries.
