Car accidents and rain. Not a surprising combination.
A number of automobile accidents have already occurred today because of rain-slickened roads, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
St. Petersburg police and fire rescue responded to a car crash with injuries involving a car and a bus carrying a baseball team on 22nd Avenue S and U.S. 19. As a result of this car accident, two people were taken to the hospital. It was unknown Wednesday morning what baseball team was inside the bus, which had a Minnesota license plate.
Also, just before 7 a.m., Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a crash involving injuries at Curlew and Fisher roads. At least three vehicles were involved. The extent of the injuries was not known.
Another serious crash was also reported at Haines Bbyshore road in Pinellas, where a Clearwater Central High School student rolled into a ditch.
The rain also caused major delays at the Howard Frankland Bridge and the area near Interstate 275 and Ashley Drive near downtown Tampa. These delays have a tendency to cause more car accidents as brakes are suddenly applied and people are hurried to work.
The rain is not ending yet as more is expected later today. So, drive safely and watch out for those who don’t.
