Two Seriously Injured in State Road 400 Crash
Neither the driver nor the passenger was wearing a seat belt, FHP troopers say. It is unclear if alcohol was involved.
HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY – A driver and his passenger were seriously injured when the pickup truck they were in overturned during a crash on State Road 400, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The driver of one of the vehicles, a 33-year-old Tampa man, and his passenger, a 45-year-old Tampa woman, were both seriously injured. Neither was wearing a seat belt. It is unclear if they were taken to hospitals and where. It is also unclear if impairment was a factor in the crash. The other driver was not injured. (The FHP is no longer providing the names of those involved in crashes.)
The crash happened about 12:50 a.m. Saturday (April 25) on State Road 400 west of Branch Forbes Road in Hillsborough County.
The injured man was driving a pickup truck west on SR 400 when he moved from the center lane to the outside lane and collided with a tractor-trailer.
After the impact, the pickup driver over-corrected back across the roadway and traveled into the median where he collided with the guardrail and overturned several times.
