RUSKIN, Fla. – A 19-year-old Ruskin woman was killed in a crash that happened around 11:35 pm on Tuesday.
According to Florida Highway Patrol, the woman was traveling northbound on 6th Street SE approaching East College Avenue.
Troopers say that two other cars were traveling westbound on East College Avenue adjacent to each other when the Ruskin woman entered the intersection and into the path of the oncoming cars.
