Teen critically injured in crash with Hillsborough deputy in Citrus Park

CITRUS PARK — One teen is in critical condition and two others have less serious injuries after their car crashed into a deputy's cruiser on Citrus Park Drive outside the mall Friday evening.

At 5:10 p.m., Foust Delandier, 19, of Spring Hill, stopped his 2007 Toyota Corolla at a red light at the Gunn Highway exit of the Citrus Park Mall, according to the Hillsborough county sheriff's Office.

The car accelerated into the intersection for unknown reasons and hit the driver's side of 40-year-old Deputy Lisha Gogolin's patrol car, which was going east on Citrus Park Drive.

Daniel Robert Byrne, 19, of 3217 Lutz Lake Fern Road in Lutz, did not have a seat belt on the back seat of the Corolla and received life threatening injuries, officials said. Paramedics took him to St. Joseph's Hospital where he was listed in critical condition.

Delandier and his front seat passenger, 17-year-old Nicole Byrne, both had minor injuries and were taken the St. Joseph's.

Gogolin went to University Community Hospital- Carrollwood with injuries to her arm. No one was cited or charged and the accident is still under investigation, deputies say.
