Hillsborough deputies recover body of man killed Monday in one-vehicle crash

GIBSONTON — Authorities on Wednesday recovered the body of a man who died two days earlier in a one-vehicle crash in southern Hillsborough County.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the man was driving at a high rate of speed southbound on U.S. 41 at about 9:30 p.m. Monday. Just south of Ohio Street, near Gibsonton, he lost control of the 2004 Toyota and he went off the road and into a mangrove.

As the car overturned, the man was thrown from the car and into the water. Authorities have not released his name, pending notification of his family.

The car came to rest, overturned and submerged, FHP says, but authorities weren't immediately able to find the driver. At about 1 p.m. Wednesday, sheriff's deputies in a helicopter found him. His body was taken to the Hillsborough County Medical Examiner's Office.

    TAMPA — This summer, the Lightning could trade one of its most dynamic young players ever.

    Tampa Bay Lightning left wing Jonathan Drouin (27) celebrates with his team on the bench after beating Chicago Blackhawks goalie Scott Darling (33) to score his second goal of the period and to tie the score at 4 to 4 during second period action at the Amalie Arena in Tampa Monday evening (03/27/17).

    Keep him.

    Jonathan Drouin is live bait. The Lightning is ready to run the hook through him and cast him out there again. Drouin has enough talent for the Lightning to meet some defensive needs in a deal.

    Keep him.

    Public Safety

    Before examining the details, let's propose a question:

    This is a handout request to accompany school portraits of Joey Boylan, who died of a drug overdose and who is being written about in John Romano's column for Sunday. We'd like to run a mug of Joey with the column. Any of the first three attached pictures would be fine to use. We don't need them all. Just pick your favorite portrait and put that in the system. Thanks.
