Tampa, FL (July 10, 2018) – The Tampa Police Department was called to the scene of an incident when a 51-year-old truck driver ran a red light. The driver struck a Nissan Sentra that was being driven by a 22-year-old college student.
The impact was so severe that it knocked the Nissan into two other oncoming cars. Law enforcement officials say that the collision was severe, but the people inside the two other vehicles only received minor injuries, fortunately.
The young woman inside the Nissan sustained several injuries and had to be taken to the hospital by ambulance. She was trapped inside her vehicle and had to be extricated before she was transferred.
It was reported that there were two occupants in the pickup truck that ran the red light. The two people inside the truck only received minor injuries and they were treated at the scene of the incident.
