I-75 crash injures two teens and child

THONOTOSASSA — Two teens and a child were injured Thursday afternoon after the sport utility vehicle they were riding in hit a guardrail on Interstate 75 just north of Interstate 4.

Nick Doerr, 15, of Brooksville and Katie Maloney, 15, and Shannon Maloney, 10, both of Land O'Lakes, were taken to Tampa General Hospital with minor injuries, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers said Nicole Maloney, 39, was driving a 2003 Ford Explorer north on I-75 in the left lane when a small, blue car pulled into traffic from the shoulder — cutting her off.

Maloney lost control of the SUV while slowing down, and the it slid on the wet road, troopers said. It spun onto the grass and hit a guardrail twice.

Doerr and Katie Maloney were not wearing seat belts and were ejected, troopers said.

The driver of the car came back and talked to Nicole Maloney briefly before driving away before troopers arrived.

Nicole Maloney and another passenger, Meagan Maloney, 12, both of Land O'Lakes were not injured in the crash.
