Three hospitalized in Tampa traffic crash

TAMPA — Three people were hospitalized Sunday night after sustaining injuries in a traffic crash, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

The crash was reported about 11:45 p.m. when a Dodge Magnum, driven by Jamie M. Coffey, was headed north on Nebraska Avenue and failed to stop at the red traffic light at Fletcher Avenue. Coffey entered the intersection and crashed into a Jaguar, driven by David E. Ashwood, 30, who had entered the intersection during a green arrow light, troopers said.

The Dodge overturned several times. Coffey, 29, of Tampa, and his passenger, Christina M. Stoddard, of Brooksville, were taken to Tampa General Hospital. Stoddard, 24, sustained critical injuries and Coffey sustained serious injuries, troopers said.

Ashwood, of Tampa, sustained minor injuries and was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital.

Charges are pending, troopers said.

An investigation remained under way Monday.
