Riverview man, 25, in critical condition after I-75 collision

GIBSONTON — A 25-year-old man is in critical condition after he was thrown from his pickup in a collision Wednesday night on Interstate 75, officials said.

James Wilson Harrell, 25, of Riverview was driving a Chevrolet pickup south on I-75 about 7:45 p.m. when he approached a Ford pickup that began to slow down, state troopers said.

Harrell didn't slow down, and veered left to avoid hitting the other vehicle, driven by Guadalupe Delgado, 44, of Georgia, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. He clipped the left rear of the Ford, causing his pickup to spin toward the inside shoulder, officials said.

The Chevy flipped when it hit the grass median, throwing Harrell from the truck into the northbound shoulder, troopers said.

Harrell, who was not wearing a seat belt, was rushed to Tampa General Hospital, where he remained in critical condition Thursday. Delgado suffered minor injuries in the collision. Her passenger, Estiban Gutierrez, 33, was unharmed. Both were wearing seat belts.

Officials estimated about $12,000 in damage was done to the Chevy and about $6,000 to the Ford.
