Fatal Crash Kills 5, Head On Collision

A driver entered the interstate in Tampa, FL on the opposite side going 100 Mph. He collided with another vehicle, killing the four passengers inside.

The news report is as follows:

Five men were killed when a driver going the wrong way on a highway in central Florida crashed into a car with four passengers early Sunday, officials.

The Ford Expedition — traveling south on a northbound lane of Interstate 275 in North Tampa — burst into flames after striking a Hyundai head-on, said the Florida Highway Patrol's Sgt. Steve Gaskins.

All four people in the Hyundai and the wrong-way driver all died at the scene, according to a Florida Highway Patrol statement.

The driver in the SUV was a male in his early 20s, but his identity has not been confirmed yet because his body was severely burned, Gaskins said.

The other four victims were also males in their 20s, but their identities will not be released until next of kin are notified.

No other vehicles were affected by the collision, and investigators do not yet know whether drugs or alcohol were involved, Gaskins said.
