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.

  3. An attempt to project what Rays will look like in 2018

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — We know what the Rays look like this year: a team that had enough talent but too many flaws, in construction and performance, and in the next few days will be officially eliminated from a wild-card race it had a chance to win but let slip away.

    Adeiny Hechavarria, high-fiving Lucas Duda, seems likely to be brought back.
