Driver Critically Injured in I-75 Crash
Five vehicles were involved in the chain-reaction crash, FHP troopers said.
HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY – A Wimauma woman was critically injured Wednesday (Feb. 27) in a five-vehicle crash on I-75, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
The woman’s name is being withheld pending next of kin. Troopers said she was taken to Tampa General Hospital in critical condition.
No one else was seriously injured in the crash.
The crash happened about 8:44 a.m. on I-75 north of Big Bend Road in Hillsborough County.
Troopers said the woman was driving a 2015 Nissan Versa that was stopped in southbound traffic as were three other vehicles involved in the crash: a 2017 Mercedes GLE, a 2003 Lincoln and a 2018 Nissan Rogue.
Richard Hutton, 47, of Seffner, was driving a 2005 Ford F250 south on I-75. Troopers said Hutton failed to notice that the Versa was stopped and collided with it. The Versa was pushed to the west shoulder while the Ford continued until it rear-ended the Mercedes. The Mercedes, in turn, hit the Lincoln. The Lincoln then hit the Nissan Rogue.
Charges are pending, troopers said.
