Temple Terrace woman badly injured after her car hydroplanes

ZEPHYRHILLS – Paramedics rushed a Temple Terrace woman to the hospital in critical condition after her car hydroplaned and struck another car Monday on U.S. 301.

Marquita S. Wooten, 28, was driving south on U.S. 301 just south of Rapid River Boulevard when she lost control of her 2003 Honda and spun into the northbound lanes, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

A 2002 Chevrolet pickup truck driven by David B. Hessinger, 53, of Crystal Springs hit the back of Wooten's car, troopers said.

Wooten was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital in critical condition and Hessinger was taken to Tampa General Hospital with serious injuries.

No charges or citation have been filed in the wreck.
