Tampa, FL(JusticeNewsFlash.com)–An automobile accident involving two vehicles injured three people on Sunday night. Tampa Bay Online reports the two-car motor vehicle collision (MVC) happened near Plant City on Interstate 4 at approximately 5:50 p.m. Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) state troopers say a 2007 Mitsubishi coupe was weaving in and out of traffic when it rear-ended a 2001 Toyota. The two vehicles were traveling near the State Road 39 exit on westbound I-4. Hillsborough County police officials say the Mitsubishi was driven by 20 year-old Kyrie Lynn Fitzgerald of Largo. The Toyota was operated by 36 year-old Laura Waiters of Tampa. After being rear-ended, Waiters’ vehicle spun across all three lanes before striking a concrete barrier wall. Fitzgerald’s vehicle spun across the lanes as well, coming to rest on the outside lane. Waiters had three passengers in her vehicle, including a 7 year-old girl.
Hillsborough County emergency medical services (EMS) crew transported Waiters and two of her passengers, 32 year-old Angella Humphrey and 55 year-old Thedis Wilburn, to Tampa General Hospital. As of Sunday night, doctors and nurses say the three women are in serious condition.

Fitzgerald was also uninjured. Tampa area police authorities issued Fitzgerald a citation for failure to use due care. All westbound lanes on the I-4 freeway were shut down for approximately an hour while crew members cleared the car accident scene.
