Tampa woman dies after weekend crash on I-75

BRANDON — A 26-year-old woman critically injured in a crash on Interstate 75 Saturday has died, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Tenisha Ramnath of Tampa was driving the 2006 Mitsubishi Outlander north on I-75 when she lost control in the center lane near Sate Road 60, troopers said. The crossover sport-utility vehicle hit an overpass barrier wall, left the road, flipped onto its roof and rolled onto CSX train tracks, coming to a rest right side up.

Ramnath and her passenger, Chandradaye Rampersad, 34, also of Tampa were taken to Tampa General Hospital in critical condition.

Ramnath died in the hospital, the patrol said Wednesday. Rampersad remained still in critical condition.

Troopers are still investigating why Ramnath lost control.
