I-75 wreck critically injures two Tampa women

TAMPA — A Tampa woman lost control of her car, slammed into the median and rolled off the road, critically injuring her and her passenger, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Tenisha S. Ramnath, 26, was driving north on Interstate 5 just north of State Road 60 when her Mitsubishi Outlander careened across the road and into the median about 2:30 p.m. Saturday, the patrol said. The sport utility vehicle left the road, landed on its roof near railroad tracks below and then rolled back upright.

Ramnath and her passenger — Chandradaye Rampersad, 34, of Tampa — both suffered critical injuries and were taken to Tampa General Hospital, the patrol said.

Both were in critical condition Sunday morning, according to a hospital spokesman.

  3. Hackers hide cyberattacks in social media posts

    Business

    SAN FRANCISCO — It took only one attempt for Russian hackers to make their way into the computer of a Pentagon official. But the attack didn't come through an email or a file buried within a seemingly innocuous document.

    Jay Kaplan and Mark Kuhr, former NSA employees and co-founders of Synack, a cybersecurity company, in their office in Palo Alto, Calif., in 2013. While last year's hacking of senior Democratic Party officials raised awareness of the damage caused if just a handful of employees click on the wrong emails, few people realize that a message on Twitter or Facebook could give an attacker similar access to their system.
