Woman charged in New Year's Eve I-10 collision
ESCAMBIA COUNTY, Fla. (WEAR) —
A woman has been charged with failure to maintain a single lane after two Interstate 10 collisions on New Year's Eve.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) report, 63-year-old Cassandra Hutchinson was driving eastbound on I-10 near mile marker 13 in the right lane around 8 p.m.
State troopers said Hutchinson crossed the lane line into the center lane, which was occupied by a Chevrolet Impala driven by 23-year-old Tyrius Savage, and caused the left side of Hutchinson's Toyota Camry to collide into the right side of the Camry.
Hutchinson's car began rotating in a counter-clockwise direction, causing it to go off the roadway and colliding into the back of a tractor-trailer parked on the right shoulder, state troopers reported.
The report said Hutchinson's Camry went under the trailer.
FHP said the tractor-trailer was parked on the right shoulder with hazard lights on due to an unknown mechanical issue.
The FHP report added Hutchinson and Savage suffered minor injuries from the collision. The driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured.
