Tampa, FL (January 27, 2022) – A man was killed and two others injured after being hit by a motorist on Interstate 75 in Tampa on Wednesday night, January 26.
At around 5:24 p.m. an SUV driven by a 19-year-old Michigan man was traveling southbound on the interstate. A Maryland man had stopped his car along with the driver of a pickup near Bruce D. Downs Boulevard. The occupants were standing outside their vehicles as the SUV entered the outside shoulder.
The Michigan man hit both vehicles and the three occupants. The Maryland man suffered fatal injuries in the accident. Two Ruskin men were hospitalized, and one was reportedly in critical condition.
An ongoing investigation into the deadly crash is underway.
