The owner of Howard’s Flea Market in Homosassa was killed in a single car accident in Hernando County overnight Monday.

Thomas R. Cushman, 71, of Homosassa was traveling west on CR-476, east of Simmons Lake Road. Just before 8 pm on September 27, 2011. For unknown reasons, Mr. Cushman lost control of his GMC Yukon while negotiating a curve in the road. His vehicle crossed over the center line and traveled into the eastbound lane of CR-476.  He then over-corrected, steering to the right which caused the truck to drive off into the grass of the north shoulder of CR-476.

As a result, the left front portion of the vehicle struck a tree and rotated counter-clockwise into a fence located at 20439 Lake Lindsey Road.

Mr. Cushman’s vehicle came to final rest facing southwest on the north shoulder of CR-476, east of Simmons Lake Road.  He was airlifted to St. Joseph’s Hospital for medical care where he later died from his injuries. REST OF THE STORY HERE
