Wrong-way single-vehicle crash on SR-618

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. -- A driver attempted to travel westbound on SR-618 Selmon Expressway eastbound from the 9 milepost exit ramp around 10:00 PM on Sept. 30, 2016. 

When the driver came upon oncoming traffic, she swerved onto the outside shoulder, crashing into a guardrail and a piece of equipment for road construction. 

Dezelle Bennett, 26, was transported to Tampa General Hospital to be treated for minor injuries. It appears that alcohol was involved as she appeared heavily intoxicated. However, she refused the breathalyzer test at the HCSO jail. She has pending charges for DUI and remains in jail on a $1,000 bond.

Bennett is a civilian contractor for Macdill AFB.
