71-year-old in critical condition after three-vehicle Thonotosassa crash


Woman badly hurt in crash on U.S. 301

A 71-year-old woman was sent to the hospital in critical condition after a three-vehicle collision on U.S. 301 early Thursday.

A semitrailer truck loaded with concrete utility poles was backing into a driveway on the west side of U.S. 301 just before 7 a.m. The truck, driven by Jose Moctezuma Hoyos, 47, of Land O'Lakes was blocking the southbound lanes.

Judith Deanna Lloyd, 71, of Thonotosassa was driving a Pontiac Grand Prix south behind a Ford Explorer driven by Stephanie Barnes, 25, of Plant City. As the women approached the truck, Barnes swerved to avoid hitting it and came to a stop on the shoulder. Lloyd slammed on the brakes but collided with the back of the trailer, troopers said.

Lloyd, who was not wearing a seat belt, was taken to Tampa General Hospital. Neither of the other two drivers was injured.

    If a team hopes to hang around the pennant race, they better have an ace. A stopper. A pitcher they can count on every fifth day to stop the bleeding, keep a winning streak going or flat-out win a game that a team flat-out needs to win.

  3. GOP senators blink on a big chance to repeal 'Obamacare'


    WASHINGTON — After seven years of emphatic campaign promises, Senate Republicans demonstrated Wednesday they don't have the stomach to repeal "Obamacare" when it really counts, as the Senate voted 55-45 to reject legislation undoing major portions of Barack Obama's law without replacing it.
