Car crashes into tree; two people are hurt

ZEPHYRHILLS — Two people were seriously injured early Saturday after their car crashed into a tree, authorities said.

The accident occurred about 3:12 a.m. on Bernadette Drive, north of Francine Drive.

The Florida Highway Patrol said driver Tadd D. Wable, 20, of Zephyrhills lost control of a 2009 Mitsubishi Eclipse as he navigated a curve. The car left the roadway, struck a tree, overturned and then also hit a utility pole. Wable and the passenger, Julian M. Duffy, 21, of Zephyrhills, were airlifted to St. Joseph's Hospital. On Saturday afternoon, Wable was listed in critical condition and Duffy in serious condition, said Jacqueline Tolley, spokeswoman for the hospital.

No other details about the crash were released.
