16 Year Old Killed And 3 Teenagers Seriously Injured In Crash On University Parkway


SARASOTA FL – Florida Highway Patrol reported a 16-year-old boy was killed and three other teenagers are seriously injured after a tragic car accident Friday night.

The crash took place as a 17-year-old boy was driving a car eastbound on University Parkway approaching the intersection with Blythe Avenue.

Also in the car were 3 passengers, a 16-year-old boy from Sarasota, a 15-year-old boy from Sarasota, and a 16-year-old boy from Sarasota.

After driving off the roadway the car began to rotate and crashed into a concrete culvert at speed. The collision with the culvert caused the car to become airborne.

While still traveling in the air the car crashed into a utility pole and overturned.

As the car was overturning in the air, both of the passengers in the rear of the car were thrown from the vehicle.

The car finally came to a stop off the roadway at 7320 University Parkway, Sarasota FL

A 16-year-old boy who was sitting in the right front of the vehicle was pronounced deceased.

The 17-year-old driver of the car was in serious condition and both the 15-year-old, and 16-year-old boys that were ejected from the car were seriously injured.

FHP has stated the crash remains under investigation.
