Tampa, FL (April 10, 2022) – A wrong-way crash in Tampa on Friday morning, April 8, left two people injured. The accident was reported at the intersection of Interstate 275 and Busch Boulevard at around 3:18 a.m.
Local reports revealed that a 55-year-old Tampa woman was traveling south in the northbound lanes of the highway when she crashed head-on with a pickup truck. The impact caused both vehicles to rotate on the road.
The 42-year-old man from Tampa driving the pickup was injured, and the Tampa woman was taken to a local hospital in serious condition. Impairment is believed to have played a role in the crash.
An ongoing investigation into the accident is underway.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Head-On Crashes in Florida
Swerving into oncoming traffic puts you at risk of colliding head-on with another vehicle. These collisions can be fatal even at low speeds. Head-on collisions are among the most dangerous types of accidents, with a fatality rate of nearly 58%. Head-on collisions account for more than 10% of all road deaths each year and account for only 2% of all recorded automobile accidents.
In the United States, car accidents are the leading cause of death and serious injury, with more fatal collisions occurring each year. In a collision, your chances of suffering serious injuries are higher than you might think. Even if a person survives a car accident, serious injuries can lead to uncontrollable medical bills. This difficult financial and emotional situation may quickly overwhelm innocent victims. It’s critical to get the compensation you deserve after a serious car accident, which is why victims should consult with a Tampa car accident lawyer to increase their chances of a successful personal injury claim.
