GIBSONTON — Two women were hospitalized after their car ran off Interstate 75, flipped and hit a tree Tuesday evening, authorities said.
The women, whose names were not released, were heading south about 6:15 p.m. when their car drove off the road just north of the Gibsonton Drive exit. The car ran into the woods, rolled over and hit a large tree, according to Hillsborough County Fire Rescue. Rescue crews pulled the women from the wreckage and drove them to Tampa General Hospital, where they were listed in fair condition Tuesday night. The Florida Highway Patrol will investigate the accident.
