3 hospitalized in car crash

An 18-year-old Land O'Lakes woman was critically injured Thursday in an accident along U.S. 41 just north of Hayes Road, authorities said.

Jamie Jackson, of 22726 Sills Loop in Land O'Lakes, was in the passenger seat of a 1998 Ford Mustang heading south on U.S. 41 Thursday when Hillsborough sheriff's deputies said the driver, Jonathan Trigg, 18, of 18215 Cypress Cove Lane in Lutz, crossed into northbound traffic and hit the side of a Ford Ranger.

The Ford Ranger careened off the road and into a parking lot where it hit an unoccupied Toyota minivan, deputies said.

The driver of the Ford Ranger, Daniel Fernandez, 56, of 18640 San Rio Circle in Lutz, and Trigg, the driver of the Mustang, were both listed in stable condition at an area hospital, authorities said.

Deputies said Jackson was also taken to an area hospital, where she was listed in critical condition.
