One dead, one injured in US 301 crash

TAMPA – One driver died and another was seriously injured Monday morning after a head-on crash on U.S. 301 near Thonotosassa, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

The accident happened just before 9:50 a.m., troopers said, when Rodney L. Manwaring, 49, of Oswego, N.Y. crossed a double yellow line on the highway north of Stacy Road.

Yadiel Calderon-Pizarro, 22, of Tampa, was driving a Honda Civic north in the opposite direction. Manwaring tried to reenter his lane but collided with the front of the Civic. Manwaring's Chevrolet HHR came to rest in the outside shoulder, and the Civic rotated into a roadside guardrail near a canal. Calderon-Pizarro died at the scene of the crash. Manwaring was taken by helicopter to Tampa General Hospital.
