Yadiel Calderon-Pizarro 21, killed, Rodney Manwaring 49, flown to hospital, after their two respective cars collide on U.S. 301 in Hillsborough County.
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 has been closed in both directions due the crash.
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.
