Sunrise Ridge Boulevard intersection accident
On Tuesday, around 3:00pm, Daniel Hessburg, a 58-year-old Groveland resident, was driving his car near where Villa City Road and Sunrise Ridge Boulevard intersect, just north of State Road 50. According to a statement released by the Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Kim Montes, Hessburg was driving northbound along Villa City Road and lost control of his vehicle. As a result, his car, a 2005 Dodge pickup, left the road and struck a tree with the right front of the car. This impact propelled the car forwards where it collided with another tree along the trucks left side. Hessburg, who reports indicate was alone in the car, died at the scene.
