RUSKIN, FL. – A 38-year-old Tampa man was killed in a crash Saturday when another driver tried to pass him and instead crashed into him, forcing the man off the road and into a power pole.

According to Florida Highway Patrol, around 6:45 pm Saturday, a 41-year-old Tampa man driving south on U.S. 41 attempted to pass the other vehicle in the inside lane. The driver’s left-front end struck the right rear of the victim’s vehicle.

Troopers say when the driver crashed into the car, the man to the west shoulder and over-corrected,

causing his car to travel back across the southbound lanes, the center grass median, and overturn and finally stopped in the northbound lanes.

The second car, driven by the 39-year-old Tampa man, departed the roadway, entered the west shoulder, collided with a power pole, and overturned.

The driver suffered fatal injuries at the scene of the crash, according to Florida Highway Patrol.

Drivers need to slow down, pay attention and stop hurting and killing innocent people. Every week this happens.
