Accident May 1, 2011



May 1, 2011
----------------

There was a very serious accident on Highway 92 about one block East of County Line Road.

I heard from a neighbor that someone was traveling over 100 mph caused the wrecked.

And several people had died.

There wasn’t anything in the news about this.

I wrote the newspaper to try and get an answer.

Michael,
Unfortunately I can not find anything regarding a fatal accident on Highway 92 on May 1, 2011. 
I searched both our newscasts and assignment file and could not locate any information.
As the photos in your blog show, there were Florida Highway Patrol troopers at that scene. 
You can contact the Polk FHP office to receive an accident report.

Hi,
I don't know any details. I forwarded your message to our metro editor to ask if she knows anything.

.     The May 1, 2011 fatal accident on New Tampa Hwy. remains silent from media and public awareness.
.     There were 3 to 7 people killed and possibly 8 from what I heard.
    If 7 people were killed, then it would be equal to the Polk County record for most people killed in a single crash.
    If 8 people were killed, then it would be the worst wreck in Polk County records.
 Why is this very deadly crash unreported?

There was an accident on September 4, 1994 that is currently the deadliest in Polk County history.
Mr. Willis was driving his truck south on County Line Rd.
A car with 6 people inside was traveling north at a high speed on the same road.
The car hit a bump and went out of control.
Then crossed into the southbound lane and hit the truck Mr. Willis was driving.
The impact cause both vehicles to split into.
Part of the car ended near the cemetery.
A nurse arrived at scene and discovered two people were still alive.
They died later at the hospital. All 7 people were killed.
All but 2 were buried at the cemetery near the crash.



Raymond D. Willis
