WOMEN WERE ARGUING OVER LOVE TRIANGLE WHEN CAR HITS, KILLS THEM

An argument arising from a love triangle ended tragically when three women who had parked their cars in the middle of a road were struck by another car, killing two and injuring the third, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said. Tanaysha Troutman, 28, of Tampa, and Victoria Patten, 33, of Brandon were in one car and Stephanie Jordan, 38, of Gibsonton, was in another when they stopped their vehicles in a median turn lane along Providence Road, south of Providence Lakes Boulevard, around 10:30 p.m. Sunday, the Sheriff's Office said. They were struck by a 2005 Hyundai driven by Guillermo R. Ruiz, 22, of Wesley Chapel.
