Police seek suspects who crashed car into Tampa house and fled

TAMPA — A driver ran a stop sign early Monday morning, crashed into a house and fled with the passenger, police said.

At about 2:40 a.m. a black 1994 Honda Civic was eastbound on McBerry Street. The driver ran a stop sign at N 37th Street, veered right and crashed into a corner of the concrete block house at 3702 E McBerry St., police said.

Reginald Mike Sr. was in his living room when the crash moved the chair he was sitting in. He was taken to a local hospital for minor back injuries.

The two suspects were seen heading north on N 37th St.

One suspect was described as a Hispanic male, 5 feet 10 inches tall with a thin build and light complexion. He has short black hair and was about 25- to 30-years-old. He wore a light-colored T-shirt and blue jeans.

A Hispanic woman with him was described as being 5 feet 4 inches tall with a medium build, and about the same age as the male suspect. She wore a white sweater, gray sweatpants and dark hair in a ponytail.

    The Heater

    NEW YORK — The front office did its part Thursday, making two trades to bolster the roster in a push for the playoffs. But the Rays didn't follow up in a frustrating 6-5 11-inning loss to the Yankees.

    Rays reliever Andrew Kittredge stands on the mound and can only watch as the Yankees’ Brett Gardner starts to circle the bases after his walkoff home run leading off the 11th inning.
  4. Believe it! Rays are buyers, trade for reliever Dan Jennings and 1B/DH Lucas Duda

    The Heater

    NEW YORK — Dan Jennings' ability to render lefty hitters useless with a sinker that gets beaten into the ground and Lucas Duda's power to blast baseballs off and over outfield walls should make the Rays better.

    Lefties are batting only .169 (12-for-71) off Dan Jennings this year. Lucas Duda hit .246 with 17 HRs and 37 RBIs for Mets.
