HOLIDAY — A 16-year-old is dead after losing control of his car early Saturday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Tim Bryant Jr., of Holiday, was headed west on Blossom Lake Drive near Normandy Boulevard about 3:50 a.m. when his 1998 Toyota Corolla veered off the road. Bryant's car hit a street sign, flipped into a ditch and hit a tree, FHP said.
Bryant died at the scene. His two passengers were injured and taken to Bayfront Medical Center. Christopher Holbrook, 18, is in critical condition and Craig Fowler, 18, is in serious condition. Both teenagers are from Tarpon Springs.
Sgt. Steve Gaskins, spokesman for FHP, said the crash investigation continues. Whether or not alcohol or other drugs had a role in the accident is pending. All three teenagers were wearing their seat belts, a report states.
