A fatal, double vehicle accident, involving an SUV and semi-truck, occurred Saturday night on January 8, 2022 on Interstate-75 in Pasco County. Two adults and one teenager died in the accident.
According to Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) reports, at the time of the crash, the semi-truck was moving toward the south on the highway in the center lane at Mile Marker 283 and the SUV was also moving in the same direction in the inside lane of the highway.
Troopers said that when the semi-truck changed lanes, it came into the path of the SUV, resulting in its collision with the left rear part of the semi-truck. All three occupants of the SUV, including a 57-year-old driver, a 53-year-old female passenger and a 16-year-old male passenger – all from Clearwater – died at the accident scene.
Both northbound and southbound lanes of I-75 were closed for around six hours as FHP investigated the accident.
If any nearby person or vehicle were injured/damaged as a result of the driver’s negligence, there would likely be a valid personal injury claim.
