Old Town Man Dies of Injuries from March Crash



An Old Town man died Monday of injuries he suffered in a March 28 crash at the corner of State Road 349 and NE 878th St. in Dixie County.

The Florida Highway Patrol said Lawrence Allen Hazen, 52, died at Shands Hospital in Gainesville.

Hazen was a passenger in an S-10 Blazer that was struck from behind by a vehicle driven by Sean Michael Cornine, 19, of Old Town.

FHP said Cornine was traveling behind a car driven by Frances Debra Hazen McDonald, 54, of Plant City. Both vehicles were driving south on SR 349 when McDonald began turning left onto NE 878th Ave.

Cornine failed to slow his Yukon XL and struck McDonald’s vehicle from behind. Both vehicles traveled in a southeasterly direction coming to a final rest on SR 349’s northbound shoulder. McDonald suffered minor injuries.

Her other passenger, Sara Jo Hazen, 74, suffered serious injuries. Cornine, McDonald and Sara Jo Hazen were wearing seatbelts, according to FHP. Lawrence Hazen was not wearing a seatbelt.

Charges are pending in the 5:45 p.m. fatal crash.









What is Crime Stoppers?

Crime Stoppers is a county wide program designed to help law enforcement solve crimes.  This is done by providing the public with a means to phone in tips anonymously and receive rewards for information that leads to arrests.


How does Crime Stoppers work?

It's simple.  A caller dials 1-877-349-tips (8477) and without giving his or her name or any personal data, relays information regarding a crime:  the whereabouts of a wanted person; or the facts of a crime that has not yet been committed.  The caller is given a code number and remains anonymous.


Who is eligible for Crime Stoppers awards?

Any person who directly gives information which leads to the arrest of an adult
or juvenile, or the arrest of a fugitive is eligible for reward.


Law enforcement officers, their immediate families, the perpetrator or co-conspirator of a crime, a fugitive from justice or the immediate family of a Crime Stoppers board member are not eligible for rewards.


What Law enforcement agencies are involved with the Crime Stoppers program?

The Sheriff's Office and all Levy County police departments.  The Law Enforcement Program Coordinator works with all Levy County Law Enforcement Agencies, exchanging information regarding Crime Stoppers Cases and tips received.


What can I do?  

Take the time to fight crime.  Call the toll free tips line and tell us what you know.  Crime Stoppers does not use caller ID or record any telephone conversations.  If we do not know who you are, you can't be called to court.


Does Crime Stoppers Work?

Absolutely.  In Florida alone, based upon Crime Stoppers tips from twelve operating programs from the mid 1980's to 1993:  14,051 arrest have been made; 31,682 cases have been closed; $64 million dollars in stolen property has been recovered; and $380 million dollars worth of narcotics have been seized.  All of this has been accomplished with an average reward payment per case solved of $54.89.


Who runs Crime Stoppers? 

The Crime Stoppers organization is run by independent civilian Board of Directors representing all areas of Levy County.  These people are everyday citizens dedicated to helping law enforcement solve crime in Levy County.

Roadlander failed to stop for a stop sign at Pine Street in Bronson on Sept. 4, 2013. A Levy County sheriff’s deputy pulled him over.

He pleaded no contest to domestic battery and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Harold Monroe Dallas, 26, Williston, was sentenced to 12 months of drug offender probation and given credit for a day served in jail in connection with a drug case.

On Oct. 28, 2013 Williston police saw Dallas toss two bags out the window when they fell in behind him. Police found 134.5 grams of marijuana and 0.3 grams of cocaine in the two bags. He pleaded no contest to possession of more than 20 grams of pot, possession of a controlled substance and possession of paraphernalia for storage. Mark Steven Hawes of Bronson was resentenced to 12 months probation for violating his probation, but as special condition he must serve 364 days in jail. The probation will end when he gets out of jail. The original charge was kicking and punching his daughter in a domestic altercation.

Rochelle Suzette Howgate, 42, was sentenced to 30 days in the county jail for violating her probation on a drug charge.

Howgate was caught shoplifting at the Dollar General store in Bronson. A Levy County sheriff’s deputy found 17 hydrocodone pills in an unlabeled prescription bottle along with morphine sulfate pills in her possession.

John Edward Rigby, 57, MacClenny was sentenced to time served (76 days) on a probation violation charge. His probation was reinstated. The original charge was possession of a sexual performance by a child video in 2011.
