3 Injured in Crash on Interstate 275
One motorcyclist crashed Tuesday on Interstate 275 after turning around to watch another motorcyclist who had rammed the back of a car, the Florida Highway Patrol said. The result? Minor injuries for all drivers – and a 45-minute shutdown of all southbound lanes near the Pasco-Hillsborough county line. The two motorcyclists were driving south on I-275 at a high speed when they tried to pass a Ford Focus, troopers said. The motorcycle driven by Adam J. Clark, 22, of Port Richey hit the back of the Ford, which lost control and hit a concrete wall. The second motorcyclist, Benjamin C.Wigen, 21, of Lutz, turned back to look at the crash- and overturned. Clark, Wigen and the car’s driver, Christopher Tichanuk, 28, of Wesley Chapel were taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital with minor injuries.
