A 78-year-old woman died after driving into the path of another vehicle in Spring Hill on Friday night, troopers said.

Catherine Lord, of Spring Hill, was taken to Oakhill Hospital where she died, said Sgt. Steve Gaskins, spokesman for the Florida Highway Patrol.

Lord was driving a 2006 Ford Taurus west on Landover Boulevard at 7 p.m. when she failed to yield right-of-way at the Mariner Boulevard intersection, Gaskins said.

Lord traveled into the path of a 2012 Chevrolet Traverse, driven by Matthew Beiersi, 36, and her vehicle was hit on the left side, Gaskins said.

Troopers continue to investigate.
