Semi truck crash injures Land O' Lakes woman

LUTZ — A Land O' Lakes woman was rushed to the hospital after her sports utility vehicle crashed into a semi truck early Wednesday morning.

Sarah Scoggins, 31, was driving east on State Road 56 at 1:07 a.m. when she hit the back of a semi that was turning onto the road, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The semi driver, 38-year-old Hector Broche, had just gotten off Interstate 75 when Scoggins' Hyundai SUV slammed into the back of his semi.

The Hyundai flipped, and Scoggins was taken by helicopter to Bayfront Medical Center, the patrol stated.

Broche, of Spring Hill, was not hurt.

Charges were pending Wednesday morning.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
