2 teens killed in Pasco County crash

NEW PORT RICHEY (FOX 13) -

Two teenagers were killed Tuesday evening in a crash on a Pasco County road.

Courtney Little, 17, and Kimberlee Markou, 16, were in their Chevy Aveo when Little lost control of the vehicle, Florida Highway Patrol officers said. 

They were driving on Moon Lake Road south of Bethwood Avenue and spun counter-clockwise into the path of a Dodge Dakota. It hit the passenger side of the Aveo, and deputies say Markou and Little died at the scene.

"There's no one to blame for this. There was nothing involved, no texting. She was smarter than that. It was just an accident in bad weather," said Courtney's dad, Tim Little.

"She will be truly, truly missed. There will always be a hole in my heart," Courtney's mother added.

Grief counselors were available to students and teachers at River Ridge High School on Wednesday. Little's funeral arrangements are being handled by Dobies Funeral Home in New Port Richey.

The teens were both students at River Ridge High School. A post on the school's Facebook page offered thoughts and prayers to the families.
