On 2nd thought, he may have been on a suicide mission.

Of course, this is a tragedy, but realistically, unless he was obliterated, at 57 years old, you'd think he'd have had common sense. May he RIP.

Wow! You know he was flying to split his car completely in half. So sad that he's gone, but at least he didn't suffer, it was quick. People HAVE to slow down and STOP treating Mariner, Spring Hill Dr, Hwy 19, Hwy 50 and County Line Rd like it's the Suncoast Pkwy. It's NOT. You newcomers to our state need to realize that Hernando Co is NOT a speedway. You cannot drive like that here in this small town. We have too many retired elderly people here that were here long before you ever arrived. Driving like that will get them killed. SLOW the hell down. This is not a NASCAR town! Don't like this post...then feel free to LEAVE and go back to where you came from. You know who you are...do you want to be next?? P.S. my prayers to this guy's family...
