Patrol: Dade City woman dies, girl injured after swerving to miss dog

DADE CITY — A woman died and a 5-year-old girl was seriously injured in a car crash Sunday night caused by a dog in the road, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Jacqueline Jo Lizama Guerrero, 26, of Dade City was driving south on U.S. 301 near Old Trilby Road south of Ridge Manor at 8:06 p.m. when she swerved to avoid a dog, the patrol said. The 2000 Jeep sport utility vehicle she was driving traveled over the median, across the northbound lanes, and flipped over before landing on the shoulder.

Guerrero died at the scene, the patrol said, while a passenger, Ellana Trevino, 5, of Dade City was taken to Lakeland Regional Hospital with serious injuries.

Troopers were still investigating the crash, and asked anyone who witnessed it to call (352) 799-6767.
