A Madison man died Monday, April 1, from injuries sustained in an automobile accident on Saturday, March 30, in Hernando County.
According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Alberto Gonzalez Pujada, age 52, was traveling south on Interstate 75, north of State Road 50, in the outside lane when the left rear tire of his 2004 Ford F-150 blew out.
He lost control of his vehicle, which traveled first to the inside lane, then back across the roadway and onto the shoulder.
Once on the grass shoulder, the pickup overturned several times before coming to a final rest on its left side, facing west.
Both Gonzalez Pujada and his passenger, Ana Beatriz Carrasco, age 21, also of Madison, were not wearing safety restraints and were ejected from the truck.
Carrasco was taken to Brooksville Regional Hospital where she was treated for serious injuries.
Gonzalez Pujada was taken to Bayonet Point Hospital in Hudson, where he died on April 1 from injuries in the accident.
