    Details:

    At 6:15 p.m., Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office responded to a traffic crash with injuries at 1114 Wiggins Road S in Plant City. When deputies arrived, they found a SUV vehicle had collided with a UTV. A 2011 Kawasaki Mule, driven by Bailey Meachum, age 16 of Plant City and occupied by his brother Jacob Meachum age 14 and Trent Tolloh age 14 of Dover, was westbound on Futch Loop and failed to stop for a stop sign at S. Wiggins Road.

    Bailey drove directly into the path of a 2007 Saturn VUE, driven by Guadalupe Moreno, 37 of Plant City, which was northbound on Wiggins Road.

    The Saturn struck the left side of the Kawasaki which was redirected off of the road rotating and ejecting Bailey and Jacob. It came to rest in a shallow ditch. Trent Tolloh was injured and found still restrained in a seat belt.

    The Saturn continued north on the east shoulder then crossed the southbound lanes and off of the west shoulder and into a shallow ditch

    All of the occupants of the Kawasaki were transported to Tampa General Hospital with serious injuries.

    Mr. Moreno was transported to Lakeland Regional with serious injuries.

    Everyone involved is expected to survive.

    At this time no one has been cited pending further investigation.
