New Port Richey, FL (May 31, 2020) – A fatal five-car collision took place in New Port Richey in the early morning hours yesterday that took the life of one individual and injured four others.
The crash occurred around 1:00 a.m. on US-19 near the intersection with Beacon Woods Drive. A 41-year-old woman stopped for a red light in her SUV on US-19 when she was forcibly struck from behind by a man from Crystal River, aged 31. The impact from the crash pushed the SUV into oncoming traffic where it was struck by a vehicle attempting a left-hand turn. Two other vehicles were also hit before all five vehicles came to a full stop.
The 41-year-old driver of the SUV lost her life in the wreck and was pronounced deceased at the scene of the crash. Four other individuals were also injured and transported to nearby medical centers by paramedics for treatment.
