Hillsborough County, FL - On June 28, 2016 at 11:55 AM, a 2007 Chevy Impala, driven by Shereen E. Aziz, pulled onto Lithia Pinecrest Road from a private driveway in an attempt to travel east. Aziz failed to observe a Freightliner tractor trailer, pulling a trailer loaded with a railroad rail car traveling east on Lithia Pinecrest at 45 MPH.
The tractor driven by Shane W. Howard attempted to avoid striking the Impala and veered left in an attempt to avoid impact, and when he corrected to pull back into his lane of travel, the rail car separated from the trailer. The rail car struck a 2001 Dodge 2500 truck, pulling an enclosed trailer. Michael Warren Liverett was trapped inside the vehicle, and was pronounced deceased at the scene. Alcohol/drugs did not contribute to this crash. Next of kin has been notified. There were no other injuries.
Charges are pending. The investigation continues.
