For the fifth time this year, a wrong-way crash on a Tampa-area interstate has claimed a life.

This morning's crash happened near Dade City in Pasco County. The Florida Highway Patrol says a 25-year-old woman was driving north in the inside lane of I-75 around 4:35 a.m. on Monday. She struck a tractor trailer hauling food and beverage products.

The woman was taken to Bayonet Point Medical Center in Hudson, where she died.

The truck driver wasn't injured.

Wearing black shirts and green ties, members of Sigma Beta Rho fraternity said goodbye to Imtiyaz "Jim" Ilias, Jobin Kuriakose, Ankeet Patel and Dammie Yesudhas Thursday at the University of South Florida.

The four men were killed in a collision early Sunday morning when their car was struck by a driver going the wrong way on Interstate 275.

Family and several hundred USF students were in attendance, many wearing their own Greek letters.

Patel's sister, Krupa, says his fraternity nickname fit.

Clearwater police have made an arrest in a hit-and-run accident that knocked a young couple riding a tandem bicycle 50 feet, leaving one dead and the other in a coma. Christopher Patrick Weed came forward Tuesday, telling police he blacked out on his way home from work and has no idea how the windshield of his truck got knocked out, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Police charged him with two felony counts of leaving the crash scene.
