One Person Killed in May 15th Hillsborough County Rollover Crash on US 41

WTSB Tampa Bay reported one person was killed in a crash on U.S. 41 on Saturday, May 15th. The Florida Highway Patrol told the news outlet that two vehicles were heading southbound on U.S. 41 when one vehicle attempted to pass another vehicle. Very limited information was available about the incident. Our thoughts go out to all involved.

It is not clear if the driver making the passing attempt was going to the left or right around the vehicle. However, the pass attempt was not successful, as the passing car struck the back of the car it was passing. The impact caused the first vehicle to go off the west shoulder. The driver reportedly over-corrected and their vehicle overturned. The driver suffered minor injuries. The driver of the car that was struck also went off the roadway and struck a power pole. The driver died at the scene of the collision.
