Crash in Wesley Chapel kills one, injures three

WESLEY CHAPEL — A crash on State Road 54 east of River Glen Boulevard left one woman dead and three others injured Thursday night, authorities said.

Kristen M. Myers, 27 of Wesley Chapel was going west on the road at about 5:15 p.m. when she tried to pass slower-moving traffic. As she did that, her 1998 Pontiac Trans Am went into the eastbound lane and Myers lost control, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Myers over-corrected and started spinning into the path of a 2006 Chevy SUV that was eastbound.

The two vehicles collided, and Myers was partially ejected, officials said. She died of her injuries.

The driver of the SUV, 39-year-old Marcia L Sanchez of Wesley Chapel, was in critical condition Thursday, officials said. Her two passengers, Raymond Sanchez, 15 and Megan Sanchez, 13, were seriously injured, the FHP said.

The accident is still under investigation.
