One person was killed and three others slightly injured in a three-car accident Friday night on Interstate 4 east of Orient Road, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Tucker's car went out of control, crossed the median and hit a car driven by Todd Lance, 19, of Clearwater.

Tucker died at the scene, and Davis, Lance and a passenger in Lance's car were taken to area hospitals, where they were treated and released. No charges have been filed.
