TAMPA, Fla. - Two men were killed early Saturday morning after crashing head-on along US 301 near St. Francis Lane, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Troopers say a 29-year-old man from Dade City was traveling northbound on US 301 as a 61-year-old man was traveling southbound in an SUV shortly before 4 a.m.
For unknown reasons, the 29-year-old crossed the centerline and collided head-on with the other vehicle. His pickup truck rotated and came to a final rest in the northbound lane as the other vehicle, an SUV, overturned, rolled off a bridge and landed in a ditch, according to FHP.
Both drivers died at the scene.
