An Orange City woman was killed Thursday evening in a head-on crash on State Road 50 in Hernando County.

The crash happened at 5 p.m. on State Road 50, just east of McKinney Sink Road in Ridge Manor.

The 52-year-old woman, who has not yet been identified, was driving a 2000 Pontiac west on State Road 50. At the same time, Terry C. Spears, 60, of Groveland, was heading east.

Troopers say the woman left the westbound lane for unknown reasons and entered the eastbound lanes, right in the path of Spears' 2013 Dodge pick-up truck.

The two vehicles collided head on. The woman's Pontiac stopped on the north shoulder, while the Dodge pick-up came to rest on the south shoulder.

The woman died from her injuries at the scene of the crash. Her identity will be released pending the notification of next of kin.

Spears was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries.
