Teenager Dies in Late Night Rollover Crash
NEW PORT RICHEY (PASCO) – A two vehicle crash claimed the life of a teenager last night, after the truck he was riding in collided with another vehicle and overturned.
According the Florida Highway Patrol, 23-year-old Jorge Cruz-Bianco was traveling westbound on SR-54 in a Honda Civic when he attempted to overtake a Ford pickup truck driven by 20-year-old Robert Baldree. As a result, the Civic collided with the right rear of the pickup truck, causing it to rotate and overturn, killing 18-year-old Cory J. Teabout of New Port Richey. The driver and a second passenger only suffered minor injuries. The driver of the Civic was not injured.
Officials say alcohol does not appear to be a factor but charges are pending.
