Two die in head-on crash on Gunn Highway in Odessa

ODESSA — Hillsborough County deputies are investigating a head-on crash on Gunn Highway that killed two and sent a child to the hospital Saturday afternoon.

About 12: 45 p.m., Terry Lee Bronschidle, 70, of Tampa was driving his Chevy Traverse south on Gunn Highway north of Wayne Road when he drifted into the northbound lane and struck another car. Spencer Schertt-Barnes, 25, of Odessa was driving the Ford Ranger that was struck head-on. Both men were pronounced dead at the accident scene, deputies said.

An 8-year-old girl, Callie Fowler, was in the passenger seat of Schertt-Barnes’ car at the time of the accident and was transported to a local hospital, where she was in critical condition.

Hillsborough deputies said all three victims were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.
