Officials Investigating Tampa Truck Accident

Officials are still investigating a Tampa truck accident from June 24 that involved a box truck and a minivan, according to WTSP 10 News. The box truck overturned and spilled batteries onto the road at the corner of Tampa Street and Palm Avenue.

Firefighters quickly contained the batteries and reported that no chemicals spilled into nearby sewers and storm drains. A power line near the scene of the collision was also destroyed. The drivers of both vehicles and the passengers in the minivan did not sustain serious injuries.

According to the Florida Crash Records Database, there were 350 motorists killed in accidents in Florida in 2010. The total fatalities from in Florida vehicle accident decreased by 4.6 percent from 2009 to 2010, a trend that officials would like to see continue. Also, the State Mileage Death Rate – which is used to measure the number of deaths per 100 million miles traveled – is the lowest it has ever been since the measure was first applied.
