Jesse Lamar Wood
4610 John Fears Lane, Plant City FL 33567
Jesse Lamar Wood crashed into the back of a Hillsborough County Sheriff's Vehicle driven by Sergeant James Jackson while traveling westbound on State Road 60 at Limona Road last night around 2:10 a.m. After causing the accident, he fled the scene in his 2010 Hyundai Elantra without stopping. Jackson's vehicle was incapacitated by the impact and Wood was not pursued.
Wood traveled north on Limona Street at approximately 50 miles per hour losing control of his vehicle as he crossed the railroad grade just north of Victoria Street. The Hyundai rolled over onto its side and Wood, who was unrestrained, died at the scene. Alcohol is considered a factor in this crash.
Sergeant Jackson was not injured. Next of kin has been notified.
