FHP: Driver dies in crash on Veterans Expressway


HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – A 27-year-old man has died following a crash on the Veterans Expressway, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The crash occurred in the northbound lanes of the roadway at mile marker 6 at about 9:41 p.m. Wednesday evening.

According to troopers, Jorge M. Soto Triana, 27, of Tampa, was driving a 2006 Toyota in the center northbound lane and overtook a slower vehicle.

Triana “abruptly steered” away from the car to avoid a collision, but overcorrected and hit the driver’s side of a 2014 Audi.

The crash sent Triana’s vehicle back across the highway and into a concrete barrier wall.

He was rushed to St. Joseph’s Hospital, where he later died.

No charges are pending, according to the report.
