CITRUS – Three people lost their lives in vehicle crashes over the weekend and one of the victims was a former Hernando High School Student.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, 68-year-old Thomas Wall died after he was struck by a vehicle while crossing SR-44, late Friday evening. Officials say Wall was crossing SR-44 from N.E. 12th Ave on a bicycle when he was struck by a vehicle traveling eastbound. Wall died at the scene.

On Saturday, 21-year-old William C. Waymire died after he was involved in a crash on West Aber Court and US-19 in Homosassa.

Officials say Waymire was traveling southbound in the grassy median, when for unknown reasons he traveled into oncoming traffic in the northbound lanes. As a result, Waymire’s Dodge Dart collided head-on with a pickup truck.
