Firefighters conducted an extensive extrication to remove the driver, 24 year-old Jerrica Cole of Riverview, Florida. The responding air transport unit was cancelled due to Cole’s grave medical condition. Cole was transported to a local hospital and pronounced deceased.

No other vehicles were involved in this crash and the exact causation is under investigation by the Pinellas Park Police Department.
