Woman killed in a terrible Tampa car crash

A sedan crashed into a tractor-trailer in a deadly Tampa car crash near the Hard Rock Casino at Orient Road on the morning of Tuesday, February 7, killing the sedan driver, a 47-year-old woman from Tampa.

Florida Highway Patrol officials said the unfortunate accident happened when a westbound sedan on Hillsborough Avenue turned left and ran right into an eastbound tractor-trailer. As a result of the collision, the sedan caught fire and “burned fiercely,” according to the official release.

A crash witness reported that he tried to rescue the woman from the burning vehicle and stayed with her until the emergency crews arrived.

A medical team immediately took the woman to the nearest hospital, where she lost her battle to life-threatening injuries. The police have not yet identified her.

The tragic accident is still under investigation, and more details will follow soon.

We offer our deepest condolences to the grief-stricken family of the departed woman.
