Two People Killed in Separate Crashes, Same Roadway, Hours Apart

CITRUS COUNTY – A sad day for two Citrus County Families, after separate vehicle crashes claimed the lives of two women on SR-44.

The Florida Highway Patrol responded to the intersection of SR-44 and Sunshine Path (Crystal River) around 1:00 p.m. today, after a two-vehicle crash occurred at that location.

Officials say 25-year-old Taylor Kofmehl was traveling eastbound on SR-44 in a bi-directional turn lane, when for reasons unknown, he veered into the westbound lanes of traffic. As a result, Kofmehl’s pickup truck collided head-on with a 2009 Chrysler 300, killing the driver, 52-year-old Janice Corona or Homosassa.

Kofmehl suffered serious injuries and was transported to Citrus Memorial Hospital for treatment.

The second crash occurred around 4:26 p.m. at the intersection of SR-44 and Arlene Ave (Inverness), where officials say 23-year-old Joshua Marsden was traveling westbound at a high-rate of speed in a 2007 Nissan Z series car. As Marsden approached Arlene Ave, he lost control of his vehicle, rotated into the eastbound lanes, and collided with a 2010 Honda Civic. The impact caused fatal injuries to the driver, a 77-year-old Inverness woman, who later died at Citrus Memorial Hospital.

Marsden suffered Serious Injuries and was transported to Ocala Regional Medical Center.

Officials say charges are pending against both at-fault drivers.

  • Anyone living in the Heatherwood division of Inverness knows this car and could see this coming. This fool would regularly reach speeds over 70-80 mph on NEIGHBORHOOD streets. Everywhere he went he pushed that 350z wide open. The day before this accident I was speaking with my neighbor about this menance and how he was going to kill someone.

  • People just driving along, and minding their own business. So sad they wound up killed in a crash. This is one of the reasons why I always drive a larger, heavier car. Ive had small cars and appreciated the gas mileage, but it’s so much safer to wrap yourself in steel. The bigger heavier object almost always wins in a crash. It’s a simple law of physics.
