Pasco woman dies, child hurt when car flips

A Crystal Springs woman died and a child was seriously injured Saturday night after both were ejected from a vehicle on Interstate 4.

Cindy M. Carr, 36, of 2002 Paul Buchman Highway was driving a 1994 Ford eastbound on I-4 about 9 p.m. when for unknown reasons she began to swerve, headed into the median and overturned several times just west of Orient Road, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Carr and 5-year-old Elizabeth M. Carr were thrown from the vehicle, the FHP said.

Cindy Carr was pronounced dead at the scene, and Elizabeth was taken to Tampa General Hospital in serious condition, the FHP said. Another passenger, 36-year-old Dwight Jenkins, was not ejected from the rear of the vehicle, where he was sitting. He received minor injuries.
