A 28-year-old man was killed Tuesday morning during a crash in Hudson.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the two-vehicle collision happened shortly after 6am on State Road 52 at Alpine Parkway. The crash closed the eastbound lanes of State Road 52 for several hours.
Troopers said the New Port Richey man died at the scene of the crash.
The man was apparently driving a 2013 Ford Taurus and crashed into the back of a garbage truck while the truck attempted a U-turn on SR 52.
Two men in the garbage truck were not injured.
Charges might be pending in the crash.
Garbage trucks can pose serious dangers to drivers on the road. They weigh several times more than standard passenger vehicles, and this significant weight difference means they can be extremely dangerous should an accident occur.
