Three injured in crash near Hillsborough-Pasco county line

TAMPA — Three people were hospitalized Tuesday night after a two-car crash on Bruce B. Downs Boulevard near County Line Road.

The crash, which was being investigated by the Florida Highway Patrol, happened around 6:30 p.m. and involved a sport utility vehicle and a midsize car, according to the Tampa Fire Rescue Department.

A person was ejected from the car. Pasco County Fire Rescue took that person and the driver of the SUV to local hospitals.

Tampa Fire Rescue pulled another person out of the heavily damaged car and drove to a pickup spot for a medical helicopter.

All three were considered trauma alert patients.

The crash blocked portions of Bruce B. Downs as rescuers worked to remove the victims.

The patrol has not released the names of the injured or the cause of the crash.
