Highway patrol investigating one-car crash

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating whether alcohol played a role in a one-car crash Friday.

Driving at a high rate of speed around 8:30 p.m., Sarah Hastings was traveling southbound on Benjamin Road approaching the intersection at Hillsborough Avenue, the highway patrol said.

She drove through the intersection and jumped the center median, hitting two traffic signals, troopers said.

Troopers said the car continued to cross the eastbound lanes of Hillsborough Avenue, and the front of the car hit the ditch.

The car then went in the air over a fence and struck the fence’s barbed wire, troopers said. The Florida Highway Patrol said the vehicle landed on Tampa International Airport property.

Hastings was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital.
