Spring Hill man dies, woman seriously injured in Hudson crash


HUDSON - A Spring Hill man died Sunday morning after having a medical emergency while turning left from County Line Road onto U.S. 19 in Pasco County.

A Florida Highway Patrol report states Steve Vajda, 83, was taking the turn in a 2013 Toyota Camry when he suffered an unspecified medical problem, went off the road onto the west shoulder of U.S. 19, then went airborne and struck two parked cars at a car-rental business.

Vajda died at the scene, the report states, and his passenger, Livia K. Nagy, 75, also of Spring Hill, suffered serious injuries.

Nagy was taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point.

The report states both Vajda and Nagy were wearing seat belts, and no charges have been filed.

The accident occurred Sunday at 10 a.m. in Pasco County.
