Pasco Co, FL (August 6, 2021) – On Thursday, August 5, a total of six people sustained injuries after a driver ran a traffic light in Pasco County.
The incident occurred on US-301 at Centennial Boulevard that afternoon. Three of the victims were reportedly children, ranging from roughly one to 10 years of age. Local reports revealed that a 2013 Chrysler 300 operated by a 77-year-old woman ran a red light at the intersection.

Red-Light Collisions in Tampa FL
Every time you enter an intersection, you run the risk of being injured in a serious collision. Even traffic signals can only do so much to prevent a car accident, with statistics showing that hundreds of roadway deaths are attributable to drivers running red lights. There are nearly 2.5 million collisions reported annually at roadway crossings in the United States according to data from the Federal Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
It can be difficult to make a personal injury claim in Florida since the majority of people are unaware of the state’s regulations, insurance coverage, or what to do after being involved in a vehicle accident.
