It’s happened again. A wrong way driver on a Tampa roadway late at night collided with a driver and now two young women are dead, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

They say the incident happened at about 3AM this morning near the intersection at Busch Boulevard. A 24 year old woman driving a SUV was heading southbound in the northbound lane and ran into a 23 year old woman. Neither survived. No further information is available yet about the drivers.

Channel 8 reports that both women were wearing seatbelts. Hillsborough County Firefighters had to use special equipment to rip off one of the doors to remove a body. Northbound lanes on Dale Mabry were closed for several hours this morning. [Source: Tampa Bay Times]
