One killed in crash on U.S. Hwy 301

Posted: Updated:
THONOTOSASSA, FL (WFLA) - Hillsborough County officials were on the scene of a deadly two-car crash in Thonotosassa on U.S. Highway 301 Monday morning.

Sheriff's Office says the crash occurred around 9:45 a.m. Monday morning just north of Stacy Road. Highway 301 and Stacy Road have now re-opened in both directions.

Officials say 22-year-old Yadiel Calderon-Pizarro of Tampa was killed and the driver of the second vehicle, 49-year-old Rodney Manwaring of New York, was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital via Medevac.

Florida Highway Patrol says the second vehicle was traveling southbound on 301 when Manwaring attempted to pass another vehicle also heading south in the two-lane road marked with a double yellow line. As the second car was attempting to pass, it approached Pizarro's vehicle and was unsuccessful in re-entering the southbound lanes causing the collision.

The first car landed in the southbound shoulder and the second car collided with a guardrail near a canal and came to a rest.

Further details that led to the accident remain under investigation at this time.
