Troopers: Wimauma crash kills 2 after driver loses control

Two drivers died in a Wimauma crash after a man lost control of his vehicle, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

A 2011 Dodge Caliber was traveling south on U.S. Highway 301 around 8 p.m. Saturday when it veered into the path of a northbound vehicle, FHP said.

The cars collided near the intersection of U.S. 301 and Ayersworth Glen Boulevard, south of Balm Road. The Dodge Caliber spun and its driver, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the vehicle, troopers said.

Both drivers were flown to Tampa General Hospital and died there, according to the patrol.

Troopers identified the driver of the Dodge Caliber as William Cole Boyd, 26, of Riverview. The driver of the second vehicle was Ana L. Simon, 44, also of Riverview.

  3. Review: Jason Aldean fires up a country-dude party at Tampa's MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre


    Country music has a dude problem.

    I’m not talking about the proliferation of mindless bro country over the past half-decade, nor am I referring to the fact that most of Nashville’s best music these days comes not from said bros, from female singers and songwriters.
