According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Albert Funari, Jr., 45, was killed in the 3-vehicle crash that happened just after 8 p.m. on U.S. Highway 19 at West Arber Court in Homosassa.
Troopers said Funari's northbound 2004 Nissan Xterra was bumped by a 2000 Jeep Cherokee when the driver, Matthew Canning, attempted a lane change.
The collision sent the Nissan to the right, forcing Funari to over-correct. His vehicle began to rotate while going back across all of the northbound lanes and into southbound traffic.
The Xterra crashed into a 2012 Nissan Altima, being driven by Pamela Wikberg, 56. The Xterra overturned and Funari was ejected. He died at the scene.
Wikberg and her passenger, husband, 62-year-old Tony Wikberg suffered critical injuries and were rushed to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point in Hudson.
The 29-year-old driver of the Jeep and his 28-year-old passenger were not injured in the crash.
The crash remains under investigation.
