Crash leaves Riverview teen in critical condition, others injured

A 19-year-old Riverview woman was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital in critical condition and three others were hospitalized after a crash this morning in Ruskin.

Shortly after 7:30 a.m., Maraha Leigh Hange was driving a 2000 Ford Ranger west on 19th Avenue when she drifted off the road onto the shoulder, deputies said. Hange overcorrected when she turned back onto the road and crossed into the path of an oncoming 2008 Acura MDX, which she struck head on, deputies said.

The driver of the Acura, Susan Lynn Jacobson, of Apollo Beach, and her passengers Cole Steppacher, 6, and Shelby Steppacher, 5, were taken to Tampa General with “incapacitating injuries,” the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said.
