A very serious auto accident occurred on March 6, 2013, which is causing the Florida Highway Patrol to ask New Tampa area motorists to come forward if they have any details about the crash that took place early Sunday on State Road 56 around 1:00 a.m.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, this New Tampa truck accident that occurred on the Interstate 75 overpass on State Road 56 involved a sports utility vehicle and a semi-truck, and it left a Land O’Lakes resident in critical condition.
Sarah Scoggins, 31, of Land O’Lakes was traveling east on State Road 56 on the overpass as a semi-truck was traveling north on the exit ramp. According the police, truck driver 38-year-old Hector Broche, of Spring Hill, was headed north, turning left onto State Road 56 when the SUV driven by Scoggins collided with his semi-truck.
It was reported that Scoggins’ 2007 Hyundai Tucson rear-ended the semi-truck that was turning. Upon impact, her car continued into the median and flipped over. She suffered serious injuries and was flown by helicopter to St. Joseph’s Hospital for medical treatment.
The Florida Highway Patrol is still investigating the cause of this crash that took place on State Road 56 and has asked anyone with information to contact the patrol at 813-631-4020.
Hector Broche was uninjured in the accident, and there has been no further update on Sarah Scoggins’ injuries at this time. Charges are pending.
The personal injury lawyers at the Mallard Law Firm would like to wish Sarah Scoggins a full recovery.
