An Orange City woman was killed Thursday evening in a head-on collision on State Road 50 in Hernando County.
The crash occurred at 5 p.m. on State Road 50, just east of McKinney Sink Road in Ridge Manor.
The 52-year-old woman, was driving a 2000 Pontiac west on State Road 50. At the same time, a 60-year-old Groveland man was heading east.
