Two Confirmed Dead After Horrific Crash on Mariner Blvd- Victims Identified

SPRING HILL – A horrific scene tonight, after a two car accident claims the life of at least one person and possibly a second at the intersection of Mariner Blvd and Bali Lane.

Four Helicopters were initially requested by rescue officials but only one could fly due to inclement weather.

There are unconfirmed reports that a total of three patients, including a child, were transported to Bayonet Point Hospital, one to Oakhill Hospital, and a third victim was confirmed deceased at the scene.

The Florida Highway Patrol is on the scene investigating the cause of the accident at this time.

UPDATE: According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the driver of a 2011 Infinity G37, 25-year-old Rahimer Mejia Travieso was traveling northbound at a high rate of speed, while trying to negotiate the left hand curve. Travieso lost control of the vehicle and began to rotate counter-clockwise into the southbound lanes – directly into the path of a 2010 Dodge Charger, Driven by 43-year-old Clarethia Cole.

Travieso was trapped inside the heavily damaged vehicle and died at the scene. Cole was transported to Oakhill Hospital, where she later died from her injuries. Passengers in the Dodge Charger, 37-year-old Latosha Cole was transported to Bayonet Point Hospital in serious condition and a 9-year-old girl was airlifted to All Children’s Hospital in serious condition.

Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the cause of the accident.

  • Doesn’t matter how nice he was in life now

    He will now forever be the ass-clown that destroyed innocent lives with his COMPLETE disreguard for “OTHERS” in his MASSIVE rush down Mariner blvd’s residential area “with sidewalks, and people’s homes on BOTH sides of the road…. (On wet roads from the rain half of the damn day)

    Just wait and see aprox how fast he was going in that 40mph zone, then you’ll get a clue just how much he was willing to gamble with others lives…

  • Rai has been my barber for years, he was actually the FURTHEST thing away from a Thug. Very Respectful, Humble, Polite, Human Being! Anybody who knew him, can agree 100%. ….So dont be ignorant & assume different, especially if you didnt know him personally. my thoughts and prayers go out to both families involved.

    Sunday, 19 April 2015, 7:18 pm
  • TUBBS is back….

    NOW.. Yes I do feel sorry for the young man & his family that he is dead.. that caused this accident…
    The guy, when he was alive probably was no thug.. I’m sure he worked very hard and tried to get ahead in life just like the rest of us.

    BUT. when you decide to drive a projectile at a high rate of speed and take out other peeps, such as this innocent family he hit, not to mention the little girl, that was severely injured that now has to grow up without her mother!

    AND…nothing about race, I don’t even know the color of his skin… you always have to play the race card because you have nothing else to defend your crappy actions and thoughts with.

    So in my option… the guy was fine until he wiped out the family… so now I do still call him a THUG!! SORRY I HURT YOUR FEELINGS!!!

    Sunday, 19 April 2015, 2:41 pm
  • Just can’t wait to hear the scientific approximations of the speed the guy who lost control was going(as they have very accurate methods to closely approximate this today)….IMO & IME Having been around MUCH more than a few late model car wrecks, I’d be willing to bet that he was “approaching” DOUBLE the fairly slow posted speed limit on Mariner to cause this kind of carnage(just watch)….

    This (speeding factor, in wet roads on top of it) is what changes it all from simply an accident where one happens to be at fault(where there are injuries), compared to one being definitely wreckless and ruining endless amounts of lives with ones complete carelessness….

  • Not to ruffle any feathers but if you willfully speed down a highway and lose control cause you were speeding that’s not an accident you don’t accidentally accelerate.

    Saturday, 18 April 2015, 11:32 pm
  • Whoever said Ray was a thug, you are absolutely wrong! That was the most classy man I know & well respected too! He always brightened up people’s days just by smiling! Don’t talk shit if you don’t know the man, there is nothing bad to say about that man he was always talking good about everybody! Have a heart for crying out loud! R.I.P Ray I love you & everybody that knows you, knows who you really are <3 #NYFinestlove

  • I knew this gentlemen. He was a great person and comes from a wonderful family. Will be greatly missed. So sorry for the people who died and affected by this awful tragedy. God bless these families.

  • As far as I know & last I heard on friday, the young girl was alive but in serious condition with multiple injuries. I won’t speculate as to what, because all I know is here say. I work at the school the young girl attended and many people are close to the family, give both sides respect & continue to pray for the families & friends of the 2 that perished.

  • He made a bad choice that caused death, we need to stop romanticizing speed. Will be interesting to learn of the toxology report.

    • Report ALREADY stated Alcohol was NOT a factor… Read the entire article before passing judgment…

      Monday, 20 April 2015, 4:17 pm
  • It’s a shame that we can’t just let things be…both families lost someone important to them. It’s not like either party stated, “Jeeze, I think I’m gonna get in a wreck tonight!” It was an ACCIDENT, one that will forever impact the lives of all the loved ones of these precious people. More importantly we should focus on praying for the families that are grieving the tragic death of their family members…their loved ones…Who are we to judge anyone??? To all family members involved I’m sorry for your loss and am praying for all of you! May God surround you at this very moment and may he wrap his loving arms around all of you! My deepest condolences go out to both families. My heart grieves for all of you…-Much Love

  • Good People do bad things too. Doesn’t make them bad people just wrong at that time.I have been on both sides of this debate and watched a man that was a great community leader most of his life make one bad judgement that he is now known for all eternity. Just a Sad day in Spring Hill today.

    Friday, 17 April 2015, 8:43 pm
  • My Heart goes out to both families. To Alina I agree with u ,people need to stop taking life for granted and slow down. I personally knew the young man , it’s a tragedy. May he rest in peace and may these families find the peace to live on without them.

  • @tubbs you don’t know anything about Ray. He was a hard working dude with a honest demeanor. Always told me to do the right thing. You’re an ignorant bastard.

  • It is a very sad day in Spring Hill today. Way to much pain to go around from this one.

  • Ok people I’ve read enough Listen Closely…. Many of us have made bad decisons at some point in our lives like drinking or smokin the good green stuff while behind a wheel. This doesn’t make us bad people, just the same as the color of our skin, or how we dress so please STOP ASSUMING that because you saw pics of this boy drinking in his car, or that he’s dark skinned makes him a “THUG”. What happened last night was, is, and will forever remain a SAD TRAGEDY ! People DIED ! Families LOST loved ones ! Serious injuries for the survivors if any we’re obtained ! The lives of many are FOREVER changed because of a bad decision ! If the report says that the driver of the Infinity was traveling at high speeds I believe it. WHY? because there is this team called “CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATORS” that the first thing they do is measure certain points of the scene such as Tire marks on the pavement, and car damage to all of the vehicles involved to determine who was actually at fault. This doesn’t make the driver of the infinity a BAD PERSON, A THUG, OR A MURDERER ! This makes him a candidate of poor choices. I so often see so many poeple not just young people driving at high speeds as if they are the only ones on the road. They cut in front of you because you’re going to slow for their liking only to make it to the red light before you “SERIOUSLY” Or the speed around you to cut in front to never advance from that spot “REALLY” Or they turn in front of you knowing damn well that your going at a much faster speed than them simply because they are at a standstill “SURE I GUESS SO” The thought that something horrific can occur from their lack of judgement probably never enters their mind. And then it happens, in an instant many, many lives are forever changed. For the victims as well as their families & friends. Loved ones are forever lost. WHY? Because they were in a hurry!! In a hurry for what? Were you in a hurry to kill someone or were you in a hurry to kill yourself? I am not speaking only to this boy driving the infinity, I am speaking to everyone who owns a DRIVERS LICENSE ! STOP WITH THE FREAKIN HURRY TO GET NO WHERE except possibly the MORG or HOSPITAL. Not just because you can end up killing yourself but in the process take the lives of others ! Lives that you DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT TO TAKE ! Lives that you don’t have the right to change certainly not in that manner. All for the sake of getting somewhere hoping it doesn’t end up no where. This boy didn’t get in his car intending for this very sad and unfortunate event to occur but it did because of poor judgement. My heart goes out to him because he died to young, his victims because they suffered for something they didn’t cause, and the families of all parties involved because they had something precious stolen from them. As a mother, sister, wife, daughter, and dear friend to so many I can not begin to imagine being the Mother, sister, daughter, or friend of that special someone who lost their life because of someone else’s poor judgment. To those lives forever changed I say this. .. May God give you the strength to understand and come to terms with your great loss. May he heal your soul from the loss & emptyness to come. May he grant you the gift of forgiveness for the person who caused your pain. And may he grant you peace for your future days. People STOP blamimg color, race, ethical background and all that other extra stuff you try to tag on its all bullshit. Remember that anyone of us can at anytime become a victim or be the victimizer. STOP hurring to get somewhere its better to get there 5mins later than to never make it there at all. STOP and think can you live with yourself if you caused the death of an innocent person simply because you were in a hurry ? Everyone stop judging this boy and start praying for everyone involved because there isnt enough prayers to go out that can give comfort to families at this time. I will pray for those families and I will also pray that people will start making better judgements when they are behind the wheel for themselves & others. MY SINCERE CONDOLENCES TO THE FAMILY OF ALL PARTIES INVOLVED.

  • Day or night Mariner is a residental race track. The commercial areas of Mariner have poor traffic flow. Mariner is almost impossible to cross on foot because of the rises of the roadway and the curves. It is so scary to drive Mariner just like narrow Northcl9ff Blvd.

  • I knew Rahimer, he was our friend- not a thug. At this horrible time, lives have been lost- can we just take a moment to respect the souls that families and friends just lost, instead of bashing a person who is now no longer with us, who is now being judged because of people’s negative accusations. Rahimer did not intentionally do this, he sadly had an ACCIDENT, which is why they’re called ACCIDENTS- thug or not- he doesn’t deserve people to be saying such horrible things about him – he hasn’t even been deceased for 24 hours. I feel horrible, and this is a hard time and everyone handles death in their own ways- but if youre just going to come here to bash the dead, who cannot defend their actions- then kindly keep the negativity to yourself. you are no better than a THUG if you cant keep your mouth shut. anyways- RIP to the Mejia family and to all families and friends who have lost someone in this horrible accident.

  • I know the driver in the infinity personally. He was a friend of my son and my neighbor. He used to hang out at my house. This kid NEVER disrespected me, or anyone else that I ever saw. He was ALWAYS welcomed in my house, and he MOST DEFINITELY WAS NOT A THUG!!. hE WAS A HARD WORKING YOUNG MAN WHO PROBABLY MADE A POOR CHOICE TO SPEED, AND IT COST HIM AND OTHERS DEARLY. BUT HE WAS NOT A THUG OR A BAD BERSON, OR A DRUGGIE OR A DRUNK… DON’T ASSUME YOU KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT A PERSON BECAUSE YOU SEE A YOUNG DARK SKINNED KID IN A NICE CAR, THAT HE MUST BE A GANG BANGER OR CRIMINAL TO AFFORD SOMETHING LIKE THAT… HE AND THE PEOPLE HE SURROUNDED HIMSELF WITH ARE ALL GREAT PEOPLE.LIKE I SAID EARLIER, MY CHILDREN WERE SOME OF HIS FRIENDS…

    Friday, 17 April 2015, 1:53 pm
    • we all, more often when young, make bad choices. I spun across 6 lanes of us 19, was heading north, ended up in the south bound retention area hit a puddle going about 50 in the rain (as i am pretty sure it did yesterday).. an 18 wheeler was coming the other way… thankfully he saw me start to spin and slowed to a near stop before I crossed his path. wasn’t my time. Sorry for your families loss.

I’m pretty sure that they have investigated and are positive on what they have found before they put it out to the public don’t you think ??? I had to respond to you b/c of what you said but just know that the leave a reply is to show remorse to the families and all the victims involved not for anyone to pass judgment on the people involved we where not there so we don’t know what happen and we shouldn’t just assume b/c when you do you make an “ASS” out of yourself Good Day Nene !!! just sad 🙁

    Friday, 17 April 2015, 1:40 pm
  • here we go again speed kills when will people learn driving is a privalge ,don’t drive in a rush leave a little early,why is it everyone prays to God when these things happen drive more carefully an GOD will allways bless you. just ask.

Keep your negative comments to yourself because they’re not wanted. You need to have some damn respect. Stop talking shit.

    • Done with your personal attacks yet! Send some more if it makes you fell better! All I did is state the facts. I am sad people died, but 100s of thousands of people die everyday all over the world! Sorry to say it again, speed kills, the speeder as well as the innocent! Personally I hope this makes just one person think before they go speeding around town! May God bless you as well as the dead and their families. Have a good day.

I’m sorry but it’s true. I knew this guy and he was not thug. I can give you thousands of reasons why but in this moment all that has to be done is to pray for his family n everyone else’s n for those who still in the hospital ..

  • Heard all the sirens and helicopter last night. I knew it was bad. So sad to see this. May the Lord comfort all involved; prayers for the families. This is literally the most dangerous place to drive I’ve ever lived. There is every kind of bad driver possible in this town. There is also a lot of speeding at night it seems. I live close to Elgin & Barclay hear racing cars and motorcycles nightly; Mariner is notorious for that, too.

    Friday, 17 April 2015, 10:31 am

      Friday, 17 April 2015, 1:13 pm
    • I have looked at his facebook page and there is nothing that would lead a person to believe he is a thug. He is proud of his look and that probably has to do with his job since he was a barber. He was probably showing off his or another colleagues great clipper work. I did not know this young man but the word thug would never come to mind just by looking at his facebook page. You are an idiot Tubbs and should keep your garbage comments to yourself when you dont know the person and given the sad circumstances. He made a mistake by speeding but that does not make him a horrible person. We all have sped at one time in our life and nobody should pay the ultimate price with their life.

      Friday, 17 April 2015, 2:33 pm
    • @TUbbs http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/thug check out the definition of thug before you speak. He might be at fault but he was no thug. Hard working kid with lovely family that are hurting right now.

    • May I also point out that since you are not “friends” w/ him on Facebook all you’re being allowed to see are his cover photos (pics. of himself mostly) if you were a friend I’m sure you would be seeing much more intimate details of his life. Maybe then you would respond like a human being, Tubbs and Sam. Why is it that people like you never post under their full names ?? I wish comfort for the families…

  • Terrible accident! Time for the Hernando County Sheriff to move the speed enforcement patrol from the day shift on Spring Hill Blvd to the evening shift on Mariner.
    Many complain about this type of law enforcement but it works. Maybe a texting and driving trap could also be enacted on all our streets.

  • Wasn’t there, but I heard all the sirens! Look like their was one hell of a lot of speed involved to mangle the cars like that! Sure wished I knew the details of the accident! Looks like the the white Charger(?) tee boned the SUV/van(?)! Sad, but I suspect this is a case of “speed kills”! Of course the cars don’t accelerate themselves.

    • Just read the update and see the Infinity not the Charger was speeding. Just goes to show ya not to assume too much! Based on the pictures I would have guessed the Charger driver was at fault. So wrong I would have been!

  • I also arrived seconds after it occurred, before any help. Very sad situation. The driver of the black car passed away and it was right in front of the Hair Salon that his mother owns, and a block away from the Barbershop that he worked in.

    • Yes Andrea I noticed that too, I prayed last night and this morning for these families that God give them strength through this trying time. My deep condolences to both families.

      Friday, 17 April 2015, 10:23 am
    • Whilst I do believe in angels, the bright light you are seeing is what is used to block the image of the deceased in the vehicle. The cars shown are quite enough carnage, nobody needs to see bodies. So sad. Prayers for the victims and the families of the deceased.

      Friday, 17 April 2015, 11:31 am
    • The white space you are referring to were placed there so you couldn’t see the bodies. It’s not a random “white light”

      Friday, 17 April 2015, 11:44 am
  • I arrived right after it happened before ambulances or cops made it there and it was horrific and so sad. The screams and cries and what I saw was not pretty. I pray for the families!
