Nine people were hospitalized after two vans collided Monday night.
A 1992 Ford van was turning north out of a private field onto S County Road 579 about 4:30 p.m. when a southbound GMC van swerved to avoid a crash.
The two vehicles collided head-on, tumbled to the highway's edge and overturned.
Six adults were taken to Tampa General Hospital, and one adult and two children were sent to South Bay Hospital, a Hillsborough County sheriff's spokeswoman said.
Identities of the victims were not available late Monday.
