On September 10, a multi-vehicle accident in Tampa claimed the life of an 18-year-old man and left three other individuals severely injured. According to authorities, the accident transpired around 4:30 p.m. at the intersection of Double Branch Road and West Hillsborough Avenue.
Highway officials said that the 18-year-old man was driving a 2008 Hyundai east on Hillsborough Avenue and struck the front of a Ford F250 pickup truck while trying to pass it. As a result of the collision, the Hyundai caromed into the roadway's concrete divider, which in turn propelled the vehicle into the air. The Hyundai then crashed into another vehicle, a 2012 Chrysler operated by a 51-year-old man.
