Valrico, FL (5/10/2020) – Six people, including two Sheriff’s deputies, were injured after a suspected drunk driver crashed into an unmarked police cruiser early Sunday morning. The crash occurred just before 2:00 a.m. on Highway 60 near Church Street.

According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, two DUI investigators were parked in the median of Highway 60 when a car driven by 25-year-old Aaron Major crashed head-on into one of their unmarked cruisers. The two officers, Major, and three of Major’s passengers were transported to several hospitals with moderate injuries. Everyone is expected to recover from the accident.

Investigators say that Major claimed to fall asleep at the wheel, but they suspect that alcohol was a factor in the crash. Police are still investigating the accident and no charges have been filed yet.
