Woman dies in accident on I-75

TAMPA — A Lutz woman died after her son lost control of a car in rainy weather on Interstate 75 near the Hillsborough-Manatee county line on Sept. 6, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Jason Arthur Skau, 40, of Tampa, was driving a 2003 Ford Explorer and tried to pass another vehicle when the SUV veered onto the shoulder, hit a tree and flipped, authorities said. Skau and his mother, Mary Griffin Skau, 71, were both wearing seat belts, FHP officials said Monday. They were transported to Blake Memorial Hospital where Mary Skau was pronounced dead.
