Head-On Crash That Killed 5 Still Under Investigation

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Florida Highway Patrol troopers say they’re trying to determine what entrance onto Interstate 275 a driver took to end up going the wrong way and crashing into a car carrying four University of South Florida students.

All five died in the Sunday morning crash.

The Tampa Tribune reports the driver of the wrong-way car has not yet been identified because the body was so badly burned in the crash.

The four students were all members of USF’s Sigma Beta Rho fraternity. A call for donations for the families of the students raised nearly $50,000 in just two days. Two of the students were from Melbourne, Fla., and the others were from Orlando and Fort Myers.

The fraternity will hold a remembrance ceremony on Thursday at USF.
