Hernando County, Florida (February 9, 2018) – A Spring Hill man was fatally injured in a two-vehicle collision on Wednesday evening in Hernando County, according to Florida Highway Patrol.
The accident happened at around 5:40 p.m. Wednesday, February 7, on County Line Road at Long Lake Drive.
Troopers said Kenneth Koenen, 48, of Spring Hill, was driving a 2016 Nissan east on County Line Road when he tried to overtake another vehicle using the westbound lane.
