The crash took place on State Road 54 near Ashton Oaks Boulevard at around 10:30 in the evening. The 25-year-old Wesley Chapel woman was driving her car west on State Road 54, when she lost control and entered the eastbound lanes, according to Florida Highway Patrol troopers. After losing control, she collided with an SUV traveling eastbound.
The driver of the out of control vehicle suffered fatal injuries at the scene of the crash. The passenger of the SUV, a 34-year-old woman from Zephyrhills, also died following the crash. The SUV driver, a 37-year-old man, suffered serious injuries and survived.
According to Florida Highway Patrol troopers, none of the parties involved in the collision were wearing a seatbelt. Had any of the people involved been wearing a seatbelt, the two women who suffered fatal injuries may have survived. According to the CDC, wearing a seat belt reduces the risk of death of drivers and front-seat passengers by 45%, and reduces the risk of serious injury by 50%.
